The Dewey Decimal Classification observed its centennial as this, the nine- 
teenth edition, neared completion. When one compares the first and the nine- 
teenth editions of the Classification and reviews the phenomena that have 
contributed to its development, the one-hundred year retrospect comprises 
an impressive vista. 

The Classification has grown from an anonymous 44-page pamphlet to a 
three-volume work of some 3,000 pages. Concurrent with this growth and 
indeed a major reason for it have been the dramatic increase in knowledge 
and information and the ensuing increase in the production of books and 
other communications media. In addition, continuing Melvil Dewey's commit- 
ment to provide libraries with a subject approach for arranging their collec- 
tions, the schedules have been expanded and number-building devices have 
been developed to permit further specification by language, geography, litera- 
ture, and persons, as well as by standard subdivisions. 

The first edition of the Dewey Decimal Classification was tested by applying 
it to the collection of books in the Amherst College Library. It was immediately 
and enthusiastically received by libraries in the United States. Since that time, 
and especially in recent years, the Classification has spread to more than 130 
countries throughout the world, a testimonial to its international, as well as 
its domestic, utility. Today, the Dewey Decimal Classification is the most widely 
used of any classification of books. 

Along with its growth in size and use, the Classification has become increas- 
ingly complex to produce. Many individuals join in a cooperative efi"ort to 
bring out each edition; the contributions of each and the interrelationships 
among them deserve mention here. 

Forest Press, the publisher of the Classification, is a division of the Lake 
Placid Education Foundation, which was chartered in 1922 at the request of 
Melvil Dewey by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New 
York. The Forest Press Committee, which is responsible for developing and 
formulating policy with respect to editing and producing the Classification, 
is appointed by the Trustees of the Foundation. The Committee includes, in 
addition to members representing the Foundation's Board of Trustees, the 
following members representing library concerns: Walter W. Curley, Chair- 
man, President of Gaylord Bros., Inc.; John A. Humphry, former Chairman,

continuing Committee member, and Executive Director of Forest Press; Rob- 
ert L. Talmadge, Director of Technical Departments of the University of lUinois 
Library; Richard W. Gardner, Professor of Library and Information Science, 
University of California at Los Angeles; and J. Michael O'Brien, Head Librarian, 
Oaklawn Public Library, Illinois. 

Forest Press and the Forest Press Committee are assisted in their editorial 
responsibilities by an advisory group known as the Decimal Classification Edito- 
rial Policy Committee. The Editorial Policy Committee represents the libraries 
that use Dewey, and usually meets twice a year on matters relating to the 
development of the Classification. The Committee is made up of professionals 
who have experience in a wide variety of libraries, here and abroad, and 
who are well versed in the theory and application of the Classification. The 
members of the Committee who served during the preparation of Edition 
19 are listed in the Preface. 

For the actual editing of the Schedules, Tables, and Index, Forest Press 
contracts with the Library of Congress, whose table of organization includes 
a Decimal Classification Division within its Processing Department. The Chief 
of the Decimal Classification Division, which oversees the application of Dewey 
numbers to Library of Congress catalog cards, is also the Editor of the Classifica- 
tion. In this way classification theory and practice are combined, allowing 
for continuous and thorough editorial review. The past four editions, 16 
through 19, have been edited under the expert direction of Benjamin A. Custer. 

A major innovation for Edition 19 should be brought to the attention of 
users of the Dewey Decimal Classification. The Forest Press Committee and 
the Executive Director have been working for several years with consultants 
at Arthur D. Little, Inc., studying and analyzing the potential benefits that 
might accrue to the development of the Classification through the appUcation 
of computer technology. Feasibility studies indicated such sufficiently positive 
results that this edition of the Dewey Decimal Classification was produced 
by computerized photocomposition. It is expected that the success of this edi- 
tion will dictate continuation of the process. In addition, computer technology 
will have a positive impact on the editorial process. 

The international acceptance of the Dewey Decimal Classification continues 
to grow. The British National Bibliography adopted Edition 18 in 1971, permit- 
ting British libraries and many others throughout the English-speaking world 
to apply Dewey numbers to their collections. The Canadian, Indian, South 
African, and Australian National Bibliographies also use Dewey numbers in 
their bibliographic publications. It is expected that other national bibliogra- 
phies will adopt Edition 19, thus enhancing the Classification and its applica- 
tion, and benefiting the users of libraries everywhere by helping to standardize 
the subject approach to library materials. The value of working with the direc- 
tors of national bibliographies around the world is therefore inestimable. 



In July 1977, a change of administration at Forest Press took place, at which 
time the undersigned succeeded Richard B. Sealock as Executive Director. 
During Richard Sealock's nine-year tenure as Executive Director, the Press 
and all its publications enjoyed wide acclaim from the library community 
throughout the world, a tribute to Mr. Sealock's professional competence and 
ability.

Preface by the Decimal Classification Editorial 

Policy Committee 



The Decimal Classification Editorial Policy Committee, which had its origins 
in 1937, plays an important advisory role in determining the general direction 
of the Dewey Decimal Classification. Its constituency consists of libraries, the 
users of the Classification, and it is their needs that primarily concern the 
Committee. The membership of the Editorial Policy Committee therefore 
represents as wide and divergent a group of library interests as possible, and 
now includes a representative of the (British) Library Association, in recogni- 
tion of the growing international application of the Classification. In addition, 
a Canadian librarian, a member of the American Library Association, also 
serves on the Committee. With its users in mind, the Committee advises the 
publisher of the DDC, Forest Press, and also works with the Editor of the 
DDC, carefully overseeing changes and innovations in the Classification. 

Each edition of the DDC is greeted with mixed feelings, for it is composed 
of the cherished old and the unknown new. Edition 19, in the Committee's 
estimation, has been faithful to stability where stability is more useful than 
change, and it has been changed where a new vision serves us better than 
the old. There are only three phoenix sections in Edition 19: (1) the badly 
crowded 301 section has been replaced by Phoenix 301-307 Sociology; (2) 
political parties, regardless of their locale, have been provided for by Phoenix 
324 The political process; and (3) extensive changes in the local subdivisions 
of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales have been provided for 
by phoenix treatment of area notations 41-42. A detailed review of the changes 
in Edition 19 is presented by the Editor in sections 1-3 of his introduction. 

Though the problems and special needs of libraries using the DDC in coun- 
tries throughout the world continued to receive careful consideration in the 
preparation of Edition 19, a special attempt was made during this time to 
gather data regarding the use of the DDC in the United States and Canada. 
This user survey, sponsored by Forest Press and conducted in 1975, was an 
attempt to determine the problems of DDC users in the United States and 
Canada and to seek the opinion of librarians in these two countries regarding 
the development of the DDC. Some of what was learned in the survey has 



XV 









Dewey Decimal Classification 



been applied to the schedules of Edition 19 — for instance, the relocation of 
political history from 320.9 to the 900s — and also will have an impact on the 
schedules of Edition 20. 

The survey also revealed problems regarding the correct application and 
use of the DDC. In order to expedite and improve this situation, the Editor's 
Introduction has been reorganized, notes are more plentiful, the index has 
been rendered more responsive, seminars for classifiers and teachers have 
been planned, and a manual for application of Edition 19 will appear shortly 
after publication of the edition. Confirming our faith in the Editor's wisdom, 
many of the modifications of the DDC that the survey found to be desirable 
had been anticipated by him for Edition 19. 

The members of the Editorial Policy Committee recommend change and 
revision only after careful thought and much discussion, always keeping upper- 
most in their minds the needs and desires of the worldwide library community 
they serve. As a listing of their names and positions indicates, they represent,

Acknowledgments 



For the fourth, and no doubt the last time, I have the pleasure of expressing 
publicly my appreciation to those many colleagues and others whose labor 
and support have assisted and sustained me throughout the compilation and 
publication of Editions 16, 17, 18, and now 19. 

Specifically as to the present edition, I should like first of all to oflFer my 
heartfelt thanks to the users and critics of the Classification. An international 
group coming from many of the over one hundred lands in which the system 
is known to be used, they have read, studied, commented upon, queried, 
condemned, and praised each edition, transmitting their comments to me 
in a most helpful manner. 

Formal groups connected with library associations have provided me with 
invaluable advice and guidance. Among these are the Subject Analysis Commit- 
tee and the Policy and Research Committee of the Cataloging and Classification 
Section of the Resources and Technical Services Division of the American 
Library Association, the Dewey Decimal Classification Sub-Committee of The 
(United Kingdom) Library Association, the Dewey Decimal Classification Liai- 
son Committee of the Library Association of Australia, and a group from the 
South African Library Association. 

I should like also to extend my deep appreciation to those libraries with 
which the Decimal Classification Division corresponds regularly on interpreta- 
tion of particular numbers and their centralized application to specific titles, 
that is. The British Library (especially Joel C. Downing and Robert R. Trotter), 
and the national libraries of Canada (Cynthia Durance, Clarisse Cardin, Blair 
Cowan), Australia (Janet Braithwaite, Judith Baskin, Peter Haddad), and South 
Africa (Mrs. E. Nel). Expansions and improvements in the area table for the 
British Isles, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Latin America, and France have 
been made through cooperative efforts with libraries or librarians in the coun- 
tries concerned. 

I have received unstinting support and cooperation from those individuals 
who are associated officially or formally with the Dewey Decimal Classification. 
These include the members of the Forest Press Committee, whose names 
are listed in the Publisher's Foreword; and those of the Decimal Classification 
Editorial Policy Committee, whose names are listed in the Preface; the former

Emily K. Spears, Cosmo D. Tassone, and Edna E. Van Syoc. Most of the direct 
work on this edition has been performed by Levon Avdoyan, Frances Ann 
Bold, Constance M. Bradshaw, Judy C. McDermott, Allene M. McDuffie, Greg- 
ory R. New, Marisa C. Vandenbosch, Steven C. Wilkshire, and especially by 
Winton E. Matthews, Jr., and by Margaret J. Warren, a diligent and creative 
assistant editor. 

Finally, I wish to express my most profound appreciation to the late Arline 
Kern Custer, who at all times through three and one half editions, drove 
me, led me, cajoled me, supported me, and inspired me. In the best sense 
of the phrase, she was the editor's "better half."

Editor's Introduction 



I. Characteristics of Edition 19 

1 Consolidation of gains. Edition 19 represents a consolidation of the gen- 
erally accepted and well-received revisions and additions included in Editions 

17 and 18. 

1.1 Expansion. There are more entries, provisions for more topics, and 
therefore more opportunities to build numbers. This is a result not only of 
the greater breadth and depth of knowledge, but also of the growing use of 
the Classification as an efficient method of organizing materials by subject 
and of retrieving information from machine-readable storage. However, the 
determination of how far to expand a given section continues to be based 
on a calculation of how many titles there are in that field or how many may 
be expected, i.e., on literary warrant. 

A comparative table of the number of schedule and table entries in Editions 

18 and 19 follows. This does not include centered entries, which are duplicated 
by the separate entries that follow and are encompassed by them. Neither 
does it include entries for which the numbers are printed in square brackets. 
"Entries that may be expanded" are those entries included in the total that 
can be developed into many entries by the application of instructions that 
appear in the schedules and tables. When one considers that every number 
can also be expanded by application of Tables 1, 2, 5, and 7, it is obvious 
that the DDC's potential for detailed classification is many times greater than 
the existence of 21,504 entries in the schedules might suggest. 

1.2 Faceting. There is more recognition of the possibilities of subdividing 
various subjects according to more than one characteristic, and there are more 
notes establishing the order in which the classifier is to consider or combine 
those characteristics. 

1.3 Notes. There are more notes of explanation and instruction. In a by- 
now almost total reversal of Edition 17's policy of strict frugality of notes, 
directions appear at hundreds of places where there is evidence to indicate 
that busy classifiers tend to become confused. In particular, very detailed step- 
by-step instructions for building numbers in the 800s have been introduced 
both into that schedule and into Table 3, "Subdivisions of Individual Litera-

tures," and Table 3 has been augmented by supplementary Table 3-A, which 
replaces numerous repetitions of a long array of concepts. 

In addition to various new provisions in Table 1, "Standard Subdivisions," 
there are more directives leading from unused standard subdivisions at particu- 
lar places in the schedules to those numbers where, for historical reasons, 
the standard subdivision concepts have been placed, e.g., from 530.0151. 

1.4 Index. While the index retains the same pattern as in Edition 18, it 
has been refined and made into a more efficient tool. Many cross references 
have been deleted and replaced by numbers; more synonyms have been added; 
some of the less-used aspects of various subjects, e.g., production economics, 
have been largely removed. Topics and numbers that can be subdivided are 
no longer printed in bold-face type. 

1.5 Introductory matter. The introduction has been reorganized and 
partly rewritten. Melvil Dewey's mostly obsolete introduction has been 
dropped, but those parts of it still valuable for the practitioner and student 
have been incorporated into other preliminary sections. Those who wish to 



consult Dewey's text for historical purposes may find it in Editions 12-14 
and 16-18. 

1.6 International utility. Permeating the entire edition is a continu- 
ally increasing commitment to the international use and value of the DDC, 
which is reflected in more hospitality to needs of other cultures both through 
expansions generally, e.g., at area notations 41-42 and 8, and through introduc- 
tion of more options to emphasize favored languages, religions, and the like; 
also in a return to conventional American spelling from the residual simpler 
spellings of Editions 16-18, e.g., divorst, publisht, which greatly frustrated 
those whose native tongue is not Enghsh. The Decimal Classification Editorial 
Policy Committee and the Forest Press have adopted the following editorial 
rule to govern the objective of making Edition 19 internationally useful: 

In preparing an edition it is desirable to allow positively for the needs, both in 
detail and in order, of countries outside the U.S. Where there is a conflict between 
these needs and those of the U.S. the Editor should give his preference to the 
needs of the U.S., but must make provision for an alternative use by libraries 
outside the U.S. in a manner appropriate to the particular problem. 

2 Other general characteristics. 

2.1 Options. While optional provisions to meet the needs of countries 
outside the United States have grown in number and in detail, some of the 
other options that have been authorized during the years to satisfy the needs 
of particular libraries, but that do not promote correct classification, have 
been discontinued. Libraries following such options will continue to sacrifice 
the benefits to be derived from numbers assigned by centralized classification 
services. 

2.2 Phoenix schedules and tables. Completely remodeled provisions 
have been prepared for the following: 

301-307 Sociology has been recast from the former 301, making use in 
addition of 302-307, numbers that have been unused since Edition 16, when 
they were the standard subdivisions of the social sciences. 

324 The political process has been recast from the former 324 and 329, 
and ddes away with the previous notational bias that favored United States 
political parties. 

Area notations 41-42 have been revised to conform to the reorganized local 
administrative pattern of the United Kingdom. 

Phoenix schedules and tables are approved by the Editorial Policy and Forest 
Press Committees only when the provisions of earlier editions are deemed 
entirely inadequate for classification of modern concepts. A phoenix schedule 
was announced also for 560-590 Life sciences, but has been withheld from 
this edition because it required more time for careful study and consultation

than was available, and also because there appeared to be more pressing need 
for the revisions named above. 

As usual, lists are printed of significant topics whose numbers have been 
changed. These lists were formerly known as "tables of concordance" and 
they appeared after the index in volume 3. In this edition they are called 
"Usts of changed numbers" and they are to be found near the close of volume 
1. It is a new policy with Edition 19 not to reprint for one final time the 

superseded schedules. 

2.3 Relocations. In addition to the relocations in the phoenix schedules, 
there are 340 other relocations; this figure may be compared with approxi- 
mately 1600 in Edition 16, 800 in Edition 17, and 400 in Edition 18. The 
count and distribution by main class and table are as follows:

They are all listed in this volume following Tables 1-7. 

2.4 Reuse of numbers. The long-standing rule limiting the reuse of old 
numbers with new meanings (except in phoenix schedules) has been somewhat 
relaxed, so that the editors may have a freer hand to make logical and useful 
developments. The new rule permits a number previously used to be freely 
reused if it has been vacated for at least two consecutive editions (instead of 
for 25 years). This means that this edition reuses routinely numbers that had 
a meaning in Edition 16 (1958) but that were without meaning in Editions 
17 (1965) and 18 (1971), e.g., 302-307. Numbers are occasionally reused more 
speedily, but only by express permission of the Decimal Classification Editorial 
Pohcy Committee and the Forest Press, and in such cases are printed in italics; 
in this edition the following eleven numbers have been reused by such permis- 



sion: 025.49, 351.007, 351.4, 567.9, 597.9, 614.1, 879.9, 901.9, 910.8, 941.081, 
area-lid. Another number oflFered only as an option would, if so used, be re- 
used: 940.11. 

3 Other notable specific additions. To name some expansions and explana- 
tions as notable courts the danger of omitting mention of others that users 
and critics may consider more significant. Yet it is doubtful that anyone will 
consider any of the following to be insignificant: 

In Table 1, "Standard Subdivisions," there is a table of precedence, and 
088-089 will be welcomed by many as a device for arranging any subject by 
ethnic groups or classes of persons, while standard subdivision 068 replaces 
class 658.9 as the preferred treatment for management of enterprises engaged 
in specific kinds of activities. The use of 08 for collections has been discontinued 
except in the field of belles-lettres. 

In 340 optional provision is made to arrange law by jurisdiction and also 
to class law of a favored jurisdiction in a shorter number. 

In 900 there are substantial expansions in the history periods. 

II. Basic Plan 

4 The purpose of classification. A major objective of libraries is to see 
that optimum use is made of their collections by leading each reader or student 
as directly as possible to the material that he needs. As an aid to the achieve- 
ment of this purpose, nearly all libraries find it helpful, indeed necessary, to 
apply subject control to their books and other materials. 

One such form is classification, or systematic arrangement by subject. To 
classify a collection of objects is to place together in classes those objects which 
have certain characteristics in common and to separate from them the objects 
which do not have those characteristics. For instance, textile fabrics can be 
classified (1) according to the process by which they are made, each of which 
may then be considered a separate class, e.g., knitted material, braided mate- 
rial, crocheted lace, woven cloth. Fabrics can also be classified according to 
any one of several other principles, such as: (2) according to the material 
from which they are made, e.g., silk, linen, cotton, wool; (3) according to func- 
tion, e.g., clothing, napery, hangings, carpets; (4) according to color, e.g., red, 
blue, black, white. If priniary divi:>icn is by process, each process can then 
be divided (or classified) by materials, e.g., woven cloth of silk, linen, cotton, 
wool, the result of which may be considered an array of subclasses; and each 
subclass may be further divided into subsubclasses according to function, e.g., 
woven cotton shirts, tablecloths, towels. 

Similarly, persons may be classified, among other ways, according to (1) 
occupations, (2) physical and mental characteristics, e.g., healthy, blind, men- 
tally retarded, (3) social status, e.g., criminals, unemployed, retired, (4) marriage

status, (5) level of cultural development, (6) social and /or economic level, 
e.g., slaves, middle class, royalty, (7) age, (8) sex, (9) racial, ethnic, national 
backgrounds. 

Classification may be applied not only to tangible objects and beings, but 
also to processes, to actions, to relationships, to mental concepts, in fact to 
any kind of subject or group of subjects the members of which show likenesses 
as well as diflFerences. 

A system of notation, though not an essential part of a classification system, 
is a major convenience, (1) in designating briefly the diflFerent classes and 
subclasses, especially if there are a great many of them in a complex pattern 
of relationships, (2) in identifying the objects or concepts that belong to the 
various classes, and (3) in determining, for physical objects, their actual distri- 
bution and arrangement according to a desired and systematic sequence. 

Librarians classify their works (books, periodicals, pamphlets, sound record- 
ings, films, slides, pictures, prints, maps, microforms, and other media of infor- 
mation and communication) according to various kinds of characteristics. For 
example, because of diflFering problems of shelving, handling, and giving ser- 
vice, they usually separate recordings, films, atlases, newspapers, and the like, 
from bound volumes of more or less conventional size: in this case the charac- 
teristic of division is physical form. In libraries of rare books the works are 
often classified according to date and place of publication. Another common 
characteristic upon which division is based is specific kind of use, so that refer- 
ence books, children's books, books in particular languages, books for popular 
reading collections, or books of current interest may be set aside in separate 
groups. But most commonly, either overall or within such categories as those 
named above, librarians classify works according to subject content. For exam- 
ple, they bring together the history books and separate them from the engi- 
neering books, within the history section they bring together the books on 
United States history and separate them from the books on European history, 
and within the U.S. history group they bring together works on Abraham 
Lincoln and the Civil War and separate them from works on Franklin D. 
Roosevelt and the New Deal. Such an arrangement is most useful for eflFective 
retrieval of the kind of information wanted by the majority of patrons and 
the librarians serving them. 

In addition to organizing materials by subject arrangement on shelves, librar- 
ies also develop catalogs, bibliographies, and indexes in which they list books, 
parts of books, reports, articles, tapes, pictures, and the like in a systematically 
subject-classified order. These may be made manually or printed out by com- 
puter, and are capable of showing very detailed and subtle subject distinctions 
and relationships for the convenience of users in identifying appropriate works. 

The individual librarian may develop his own system of subject classification 
for the collection for which he is responsible, catering to the special needs 



of its users. In the past many librarians did this, and some, mainly in special 
libraries, still do. Some public libraries organize their collections of works of 
current popular interest in somewhat heterogeneous groups according to a 
reader-interest arrangement, e.g., works of interest to homemakers, regroup- 
ing titles and developing new categories as interests of patrons shift. 

However, the development of an integrated plan that will provide systemati- 
cally for the hundreds of thousands of subjects with which works may deal 
in this age of rapidly increasing knowledge has become highly complex. It 
requires the intense efi'orts of specialists in librarianship, in subject classifica- 
tion, and in the many disciplines which comprise the world of information 
and learning, from religion to mathematics to sculpture to public administra- 
tion to aeronautical engineering to football. For this reason, librarians have 
generally found it advantageous to follow one of the already existing book 
classification systems, the best known of which are the Decimal Classification 
of Dewey, the BibUographic Classification of Bliss, the Colon Classification 
of Ranganathan, the Library of Congress Classification, and the Universal Deci- 
mal Classification. 

Use of one of the recognized systems has the further advantages (1) that 
the arrangement and notation of each are widely known and comprehended 
by other librarians and also by laymen, and (2) that in the case of some of 
the systems, notably Dewey, Library of Congress, and Universal Decimal, indi- 
vidual works are centrally classed by one or more bibliographic services whose 
decisions may be utilized by subscribing institutions. 

Of these commonly used systems, Dewey's Decimal Classification is the old- 
est and most widely used. In the United States it is the system followed by a 
substantial majority of all libraries, including nearly all public libraries and 
school libraries; in other English-speaking countries it has been adopted by 
a majority of libraries; elsewhere it has users in almost every nation on the 
globe. It has been translated, with or without abridgment, expansion, or adapta- 
tion, into scores of languages from Spanish, Norwegian, Turkish, and French 
to Japanese, Sinhalese, Portuguese, and Thai. The Dewey system is now used, 
in one form or another, by such varied services as the Library of Congress's 
catalog cards and book catalogs; the American Library Association's Booklist; 
the H. W. Wilson Company's Standard Catalog Series and Book Review Digest; 
the R. R. Bowker Company's Publishers' Weekly and American Book Publish- 
ing Record; the British and a number of other national bibliographies. Titles 
in many reading lists, book guides, and bibliographies have been arranged 
or their subjects have been identified by the Dewey Decimal Classification. 
Recently DDC numbers have been recorded on the MARC (MAchine Readable 
Cataloging) magnetic tapes of the Library of Congress, The British Library, 
and other national systems; they have been printed in pubHcations themselves 
wherever a cataloging-in-publication program is in operation.

Editor's Introduction

I > 

I 



In 1895 the forerunner of what is now the International Federation for 
Documentation (FID), by agreement with Melvil Dewey as to concordance 
and bibliographic use, adopted the Decimal Classification as the basis for its 
international subject index. This grew into the Classification Decimale, other- 
wise known as the Brussels Classification or, now, as the Universal Decimal 
Classification (UDC), which has itself been translated into many languages. 
While many diflFerences between DDC and UDC have appeared in the inter- 
vening years, the foundations of the two remain recognizably the same. 

5 Dewey Decimal Classification. 

5.1 Structure. 

5.11 Basic plan. The Dewey Decimal Classification is a hierarchical system 
using the decimal principle for the subdivision of knowledge, as represented 
in publications; that is, each group in the successive division of knowledge, 
from the broadest to the most minute, is divided on a base of ten. 

The first division is into ten main classes, 0-9, which embrace the whole 
of human knowledge and intellectual endeavor. Main class is used for general 
works on many subjects from many points of view, such as general newspapers 
and encyclopedias, and also for certain specialized disciplines that deal with 
knowledge generally, such as information and communication, library science, 
and journalism. Main classes 1-9 consist each of a major discipline or group 
of related disciplines. Following are the ten main classes with their assigned 
meanings: 






Generalities 


5 


Pure sciences 


1 


Philosophy and related 


6 


Technology (AppHed sciences) 




disciplines 


7 


The arts 


2 


Rehgion 


8 


Literature (Belles-lettres) 


3 


Social sciences 


9 


General geography and history 


4 


Language 




and their auxiliaries 



So that the structure may be more readily understood, in the following explana- 
tion we use one or two digits, although in practice the notation always consists 
of at least three digits, with zero being given its normal arithmetical value 
where required to fill out a number to three digits. Thus the full DDC notation 
for main class 6 is 600. The notation used to designate the complete span of 
each main class consists of one hundred three-digit numbers, e.g., 000-099 
for generalities, 300-399 for social sciences, 600-699 for applied sciences. 

Each main class consists of ten divisions, likewise numbered 0-9. These 
division numbers occupy the second position in the notation. Division is 
used for general works on the entire main class, 1-9 for subclasses of the 
main class. Thus, 60 is devoted to general works on the applied sciences, 61 



to medical sciences, 62 to engineering and alHed operations, 63 to agriculture 
and related technologies, etc. The full DDC notations for these divisions, each 
filled out by the addition of a zero, are 600 for general works on main class 
6, 610 for medical sciences, 620 for engineering, 630 for agriculture. 

Again, each division has, or at least is capable of having, ten sections, also 
numbered 0-9. The section numbers occupy the third position in the notation. 
Thus, the full span of section numbers for each division listed above is 600- 
609, 610-619, 620-629, 630-639. In the sections, the in the third position 
in the number is appUed to general works on the entire division, and 1-9 
are used for subsubclasses. Thus, 630 is assigned to agriculture and related 
technologies in general, 631 to crops and their production, 632 to plant injuries, 
diseases, pests, 633 to field crops, 636 to animal husbandry. The system permits 
further subdivision to any degree desired, with a continued decimal notation, 
which consists of the addition, following any set of three digits from 000 to 
999, of a decimal point and as many more digits as may be required. Thus, 
636 animal husbandry is divided into 636.1 horses and other equines, 636.2 
cattle and other bovines, 636.3 sheep and other small ruminants, 636.4 swine, 
636.5 poultry, 636.6 other birds, 636.7 dogs, 636.8 cats, 636.9 other warm- 
blooded animals; 636.1 is further divided into 636.11 Oriental horses, 636.12 
racehorses and trotters, 636.16 ponies, 636.18 other equines such as mules, 
and others. 

Individual numbers in Dewey are not necessarily limited each to a specific 
or single subject. Although many subjects have their own numbers, e.g., hus- 
bandry of Arabian horses 636.112, many other specific subjects are grouped 
together in a single notation, e.g., husbandry of asses, mules, and zebras all 
636.18. 

At the end of this volume are three summaries, showing in full notation 
the ten main classes, the almost one hundred divisions, and the almost one 
thousand sections. 

5.12 Application of the Classification to specific works. Each work ac- 
quired by a library may be assigned to one of the main classes, divisions, 
sections, or subsections to the degree of specificity provided by the schedules 
of the DDC, or to any lesser degree of specificity appropriate to the situation 
(see section 5.3), and it may be identified as belonging to its specific class by 
use of the appropriate notation. (The word "class" is used to refer to a main 
class or a subdivision of any degree, be it 300 or 330 or 338 or 338.47669.) 
The notation, or number, designates the work's class; when written on the 
work and on the records that describe the work, it provides a shorthand identifi- 
cation of the work's subject and determines its relative position within the 
library's entire collection and within the appropriate discipline. 

Similarly, each subject, simple or complex, entered in a subject catalog, 
bibliography, or index may be assigned to a DDC class and arranged in classified

Editor's Introduction 



order. Classified — or "classed" — catalogs are not well known in North America, 
though widely used elsewhere. In them each work is entered under one or 
several classification symbols (together with the natural-language concept that 
each stands for), all arranged in systematic classified order. For example, if 
the DDC is used, this brings together under 669 general works on metallurgy 
and works on the metallurgy of copper, lead, zinc, tin, and aluminum, which, 
in an alphabetic subject catalog, would be scattered from A through M to Z. 
At the same time it separates works on copper industry (338), copper mining 
(622), copper metallurgy (669), and copper art work (739), which, in an al- 
phabetic subject catalog, would be fairly close together under the letters 
C-o-p-p-e-r. 

5.121 Book numbers. In large collections even highly specific, or close, 
classification leaves several works in a single class. To distinguish further the 
works in a class and to expedite identification, shelving, and physical retrieval 
many libraries add to the class number a book number; these together consti- 
tute the call number. The book number is usually based on authorship, but 
may, as in biography, be based on alphabetical subarrangement of individual 
subjects within the class notation. For the use and construction of book numbers 
the reader should consult Bertha R. Barden's Book Numbers (Chicago, Ameri- 
can Library Association, 1937). Many libraries select author numbers from 
the Cutter or Cutter-Sanborn Author Tables {Chicopee, Mass., H. R. Huntting 
Co.), or follow the system of Author Numbers used by the Library of Congress 
(Washington, D.C.). Lists of author numbers have also been devised for libraries 
in which the names have difi'erent letter frequencies than are normally to 
be found in North American libraries, e.g., for libraries with mainly Hispanic 
authors. A special book number arrangement for works by and about William 
Shakespeare, which may be adapted for use with any other specific author, 
appears in the DDC schedules under class 822.33. 

Among the other systems used for separation of works within classes are 
arrangement by authors' surnames spelled out, by initials of authors' surnames, 
and by dates of publication. 

5.13 Discipline. The concept of discipline, that is, branch of knowledge 
or learning, is fundamental to an understanding of Dewey's system. The pri- 
mary basis for DDC arrangement and development is by discipline, as defined 
by the main and subordinate classes, while, strictly speaking, subjects, that 
is, concrete objects, abstract concepts, activities, or processes not necessarily 
limited to one field of study, are secondary. There is no one place for any 
subject in itself; a subject may appear in any or all of the disciplines. No 
class can be said to cover the scope of marriage, or of water, or of copper, 
or of Brazil; in other words, there is no single number for any of these concepts 
or subjects. A work on marriage belongs in 306 if it treats the subject from 
the point of view of sociology, in 155 if from the point of view of psychology. 



in 173 if from the point of view of ethics, in 392 if from the point of view 
of customs, in 613 if from the point of view of hygiene. Similarly, a work on 
water may be classed with many disciplines, such as metaphysics, religion, 
economics, conmierce, physics, chemistry, geology, oceanography, meteorol- 
ogy, and history. 

No other feature of the DDC is more basic than this: that it scatters subjects 
by discipline. The index, which appears in volume 3, illustrates this quite 
clearly. There, under each subject, will be found the numbers in which it 
may be classed according to the disciplines under which it may fall. Here 
are two modified examples:

5.14 Hierarchy. The DDC is basically hierarchical in its notation and in 
its structure. 

5.141 In notation. Hierarchy in notation means that at each level there 
is an array of concepts, called classes, which are mutually exclusive, and which 
stand in a coordinate relationship to each other. With each new level the 
specificity of the subject's subdivision increases; that is, the classes get pro-

Dewey Decimal Classification 



Editor's Introduction 



If 



gressively more specific, more minute. The classes at any given level stand 
in a subordinate relationship to a class at the next higher level. Any specific 
class, then, has two or three sets of relationships: coordinate, subordinate, 
and sometimes superordinate. A given class can be (and usually is) coordinate 
with one or more other classes at the same level; and it is immediately subordi- 
nate to only one class at the next higher level; and it may be superordinate 
to one or more classes at the next lower level. The increasing specificity of 
subjects is usually indicated by the addition of one new digit at each new 
level of division. 

An example of a hierarchical chain follows. For convenience in printing, 
indention is not used to show the subordination of a division (level 2) to its 
main class (level 1).

proceeds from the general to the specific. The unique feature of the DDC 
notation is that these progressive steps are indicated by the addition of one 
new digit at each level of division.

621.384 136 6 Types of sets 

The spaces between the sixth and seventh digits of the last four numbers 
and between the ninth and tenth digits of the last number are not a basic 
part of the notation, but, for ease in reading and copying are left after each 
successive set of three digits beyond the decimal point in all numbers enumer- 
ated in the classification schedules and index. 

Even though these principles of hierarchy are employed often enough to 
make them a useful basis for examining the system, there are exceptions, 
four of which are described below. 

(1) Sometimes there are steps in the successive divisions of the discipline 
or subject for which positions in the lengthening notation are not available. 
Such steps are shown in the schedules by spans of numbers called centered 
entries, because they appear with numbers, headings, and notes centered on 
the page instead of with numbers in the usual number column. Centered 
entries show the spread of a sequence of numbers which is spelled out in 
detail immediately following, and help to show the organization of material 
by substituting for a broad comprehensive number that does not exist and 
cannot be inserted. For example, under 380 trade is covered in 381-382, 
communication in 383-384, transportation in 385-388. There are no digits 
available to express any of these major subdivisions of 380, and each is shown 
in the schedules, therefore, by a centered entry, e.g.. 



385 



385-388 Specific kinds of transportation 
Railroad transportation 



Here is another, longer, hierarchical chain: 



Another example is 540 "Chemistry and allied sciences," which includes chem- 
istry in 541-547, crystallography in 548, and mineralogy in 549; the span of 
chemistry is reflected in the centered entry 541-547. 

(2) In a few instances the notation is not hierarchically expressive. In these 
cases the indentions are irregular, since they do not correspond to the length 



xxxn

i'ili*!*4£^tiijiii.

Editor's Introduction 



of the notation. For example, 929.7999 is printed as coordinate with 929.73-.79, 
because royalty and peerage of countries outside Europe is a concept coordi- 
nate with, not subordinate to, the concept of royalty and peerage of countries 
of Europe. 

(3) The subdivisions of a discipline or topic are not always to be found in 
notations subordinate to, and therefore longer than, the notation for the disci- 
pline or topic itself; these situations reflect the desire of Melvil Dewey and 
his successors to keep the notation as short as possible. For example, although 
biology is denoted by 574, its branches the botanical and zoological sciences 
are classed in 580 and 590 respectively, rather than in 574+. Another example 
is analytical chemistry in 543, with its branches qualitative chemistry in 544 
and quantitative chemistry in 545 instead of in 543.1 and 543.2 respectively. 
This second example shows that within an array concepts are not always mutu- 
ally exclusive. 

(4) The digit when not in a terminal position distorts the hierarchy but 
provides a device for extending numbers. It is generally used to indicate a 
difi'erent basis for division of the discipline or subject represented by the digits 
preceding the 0. In the following sequence 599.01-.09 are used for general 
treatment of mammals as a group, whereas 599.1-.9 are used for works on 
specific kinds of mammals, e.g., on kangaroos, on whales, on monkeys. 

500 Pure sciences 

590 Zoological sciences 

599 Mammalia (Mammals) 

599.01 Physiology of mammals 

599.02 Pathology of mammals 
599.05 Ecology of mammals 
599.2 Marsupialia 

599.5 Cetacea and Sirenia 

599.8 Primates 

5.142 In structure. Hierarchy in structure means that every concept in a 
notation more specific than that of a main class is subordinate to all the broader 
concepts of which it is a part, and whatever is true of each whole is true of 
all its parts. For example, whatever is stated to be true of 600 is likewise 
true of all its subdivisions, what is true of 630 is true of all its subdivisions, 
what is true of 631 is true of all its subdivisions, and so on down to the finest 
subdivision. Hence the note under 631.2 Agricultural structures, "Description, 
use, place in agriculture," applies to each subdivision: to 631.21 Farmhouses, 
to 631.23 Granaries, silos, grain elevators, to 631.27 Fences, walls, hedges, 
and to all the others. Similarly, the instruction under 631 Crops and their 



production, "Class production of specific crops [and] products ... in 633- 
638" applies to every part of 631; consequently, harvesting corn should be 
placed not in 631.55 Harvesting but in 633.15 Corn. 

5.2 Auxiliary tables and other memory aids. The DDC notation 
lends itself readily to subject synthesis, or number building, with the benefit 
of numerous memory aids, or, as Melvil Dewey called them, mnemonics. The 
auxiliary tables in this volume form the basis for much of the number building 
that results in uniform meanings of numbers in various contexts. 

5.21 Areas. The most notable memory aid is the constant repetition of a 
standard pattern of area arrangement. In nearly all area developments, the 
digits 44, for instance, stand for France, 45 for Italy, 46 for Spain, 52 for 
Japan, 73 for United States. Consequently, since 9 is the significant notation 
for general history, 944 denotes history of France, 945 of Italy, 946 of Spain, 
952 of Japan, 973 of United States. Likewise, since 91 is the significant notaHon 
for general geography, 914^ designates geography of France, 914^ of Italy, 
917.3 of United States (in each case with a decimal point following the third 
digit). Table 2, "Areas," which specifies these area numbers, constitutes the 

largest part of this volume. 

5.22 Languages. Another common repetition is that of the numbers for 
languages. In this pattern 2 or 21 is used for the English language, 3 or 31 
for German, 4 or 41 for French, etc. In most cases the numbers for the various 
languages in main class 400 and the various literatures in main class 800 are 
the same, e.g., 420 English language, 820 English literature, 430 German lan- 
guage, 830 German literature. In other subjects where the basis of subdivision 
is linguistic, the language sequence is closely parallel to that of 400 and 800. 
Under 030 Encyclopedias, for example, 031 is used for United States and Cana- 
dian English-language encyclopedias, 032 for other English-language ency- 
clopedias, 033 for those in the Germanic languages, etc. The numbers in Table 
6 Languages, which is used as the basis of subdivision under many subjects 
throughout the classification, in most respects have the same meanings as 
the language numbers in 400. 

5.23 Other, Many other patterns appear as a result of parallel subject devel- 
opments, a full development at one place being repeated by analogy at other 
places. For example, in 372.11-.18 and 373.11-.18 the organization and admin- 
istration of elementary and secondary education are each given the same devel- 
opment as education as a whole (by means of the instruction "add ... the 
numbers following 371"); in 420-490 each language is given the same develop- 
ment ("add 'Subdivisions of Individual Languages' notation . . . from Table 
4"); in 633-535 each agricultural crop is developed according to the general 
principles in 631-632. In fact some classes of material, among them bibliogra- 
phies and catalogs of specific disciplines and subjects (in 016) and libraries 



xxxtv

Dewey Decimal Classification 



Editor's Introduction 



devoted to specific disciplines and subjects (in 026), are given the same develop- 
ment as the whole classification, e.g., bibliography of the applied sciences 
016.6, of agriculture and related technologies 016.63, of racehorses 016. 63612 . 
(A number never ends in a to the right of the decimal point, since such a 
is meaningless; hence, 016.6 instead of 016. 600 .) 

5.24 Standard subdivisions. A special kind of patterned repetition is that 
of the standard subdivisions, listed in Table 1. Virtually any subject or discipline 
may be presented in various forms: in a synopsis or outline, in a periodical, 
in tables, in illustrations. Similarly, most subjects may have certain modes of 
treatment in common: theory, technique, study and teaching, history. These 
common forms and modes are designated collectively as standard subdivisions, 
and they may be applied wherever they are appropriate. Their notation consists 
of two or more digits, of which the first is 0, e.g., 05 Serial publications. These 
digits may be added to any significant notation taken or derived from the 
schedules, e.g., serials on the applied sciences 6 05 (main class 6 plus standard 
subdivision 05), serials on agriculture and related technologies 630.5 (division 
63 plus 05, with a decimal point following the third digit), serials on animal 
husbandry 636.05, on racehorses 636.1205. 

5.3 Versatility and flexibility. A valuable feature of Dewey, not 
shared by some of the other commonly used classification systems, is the adapt- 
ability of its notation to the needs of libraries of difi'erent sizes and natures. 
The DDC can be used equally as well for broad classification as for close. 
For example, a small library, or a large one with only a few titles on the 
subject, can class the production of any and all field crops in 633, without 
subdivision. A somewhat larger library can class general works in 633, works 
on production of cereal crops in 633.1, of forage crops in 633.2 and so on. A 
library with a still larger collection can divide its books into such detail as it 
requires. As any library's collection increases in size, its books can be diff'erenti- 
ated to a finer and finer degree of specificity simply by the addition of further 
digits to the notation. A work on crystal radio sets can be placed in 621, 621.3, 
621.38, 621.384, 621.3841, 621.38413, 621.384136, 621.3841366, depending 
on the degree of closeness in classification required. The full edition of the 
DDC may be used by general libraries of any size, from the largest, which 
may follow it in full detail for most subjects, to the smallest, which may reduce 
any or all schedules to the degree considered desirable. The abridged edition 
supplies reduction on a ready-made basis and is convenient for small libraries 
to use on that account. Except at and below its own level, the abridged version 
does not uniformly provide help in making judicious decisions about what 
schedules to reduce and how far to reduce them to meet specific local needs; 
this the classifier must decide on the basis of the recognized demands of the 
local situation and expected patterns of growth. 



III. A Practical Guide to the Use of the Classification 

Note: In this guide an extensive repetition of pronouns to denote the classifier 
is unavoidable. While realizing that some readers will find distasteful the 
constant use of ''he, " ''his, " and "him, " to refer generically to classifiers of 
both sexes, the editors and the Decimal Classification Editorial Policy Commit- 
tee find any other device or circumlocution either awkward or artificial, or 
an intrusion upon the sense of the exposition, and they have agreed to use 
the traditional masculine forms in their generic sense. 

6 Preliminaries. Before the classifier tries to use the Dewey Decimal Classi- 
fication, he should acquaint himself with the system as a whole. In particular, 
he should study the three main summaries at the end of this volume and 
learn the first summary of the ten main classes; he should then leaf through 
the schedules in volume 2, observing the many summaries of specific portions 
of them. Knowledge of the pattern will come rapidly with use, and especially 
so if, in classifying, he consults the schedules first and only verifies his decisions 
with the index. He should notice the effect of the principle of hierarchy: each 
entry is a part of and governed by every entry superior to it. To understand 
the full meaning and force of 621.3841366, he must view it as a part of 
621.384136, which, in turn, is a part of 621.38413, which is a part of 621.3841, 
which is a part of 621.384, which is a part of 621.38, which is a part of 621.3, 
which is a part of 621, which is a part of 620, which is a part of 600. 

He should not fail to look through the seven auxihary tables in this volume. 

He should also observe carefully the special nature of main classes 8 and 
0. In class 8, subject is disregarded for works of literature (belles-lettres), e.g., 
a play about Julius Caesar and Roman history is a piece of imaginative literature, 
and belongs in the appropriate part of 800 instead of under history or biogra- 
phy. Arrangement of individual works of belles-lettres is first by the discipline 
literature, then by original language, then by literary form, then by period 
of composition. Detailed instructions appear under centered entry 810-890. 

In main class 0, general encyclopedic works (030), general serial publications 
(050), general newspapers (071-079), general collections (080), and general 
publications of general organizations (061-068) have no specific subject, and 
are part of no one discipline; the most significant thing about them, after 
their generality, is their form. Arrangement of such generalities is first by 
form, then by language or place as the schedules provide. 

In all other classes (000-029, 069, 070.1-.9, 090, 100-700, 900), unless a 
diflFerent sequence is prescribed, arrangement is first by most specific discipline 
and most specific subject under it, then by area specification, then by time 
specification if the schedules permit, then by form of presentation. For exam- 
ple, a work on the native snakes of Texas is classed as follows:

7 Analysis of a work. Before he can fit a work into the system, or class 
it, the classifier must know exactly what its subject is, and from what point 
of view and in what form that subject is treated. To discover this is not always 
easy: 

(1) Sometimes the title indicates what the work is about; however, this is 
often misleading, and some further investigation should always be made as a 
check. 

(2) For a book, the table of contents is usually an excellent guide to the 
subject matter. 

(3) If there is no table of contents, chapter headings and marginal notes 
are likely to give a good indication of the contents. Clues may also be provided 
by bibliographies and lists of sources n^ed by the author. 

(4) It is always wise to scan the preface for the author's point of view, and 
the blurb for a general description of the work, though the latter may be 
misleading, 

(5) If such sources prove unsatisfactory, a careful examination of the text 

may be necessary. 

(6) If the subject is complex or unfamiliar to the classifier, he may have to 
go to external sources. Information regarding the subject of the work may 
often be obtained from bibliographies, catalogs, biographical dictionaries, histo- 
ries of literature, encyclopedias, reviews, and other reference works, 

(7) Subject experts should be consulted when all other methods fail, and 
sometimes for verification of a tentative decision. 

The classifier should note that many works cover two or three or many 
subjects, considered separately or in their interrelationships. Also, many works 
deal with two or more aspects of one or more subjects, that is, with a subject 
or subjects within two or several disciplines; examples are works treating of 
both the economics and the technology of the textile manufacturing industry; 
of both nuclear physics and nuclear engineering; of both architectural design 
and construction principles of dwelling houses; and of the sociological, ethical.

and religious aspects of divorce. The classifier should note, too, the current 
trend toward interdisciplinary studies in depth, particularly in the social sci- 
ences. To become a good practitioner of classification, it is most important 
that he analyze each work carefully, not only to ascertain its subject or subjects 
but also to determine to what extent it crosses traditional disciplinary lines 
of study. 

8 Basic rules for selection of class number. Before considering the prob- 
lems involved in the application of the schedules to such compound and com- 
plex subjects as those just mentioned, it is desirable to delineate the procedures 
for classing a work on one subject in one discipline. 

8.1 Approach. Having determined the subject of the work, and the disci- 
pline within which that subject is treated, the classifier is ready to class it, 
or place it within the system. There are two basic approaches to the Classifica- 
tion: direct, through the schedules, and indirect, through the index. Beginners 
will usually find the latter approach speedier, but it is not recommended be- 
cause it delays the process of becoming fully acquainted with the system. In 
fact, the classifier should note that, whether he is a beginner or an expert, 
he should never class solely from the index. The index provides leads to the 
schedules but is not exhaustive and can never reproduce the wealth of informa- 
tion available in them. On the other hand, the index can be used profitably 
to verify the correctness of a number chosen from the schedules. 

If his approach is direct, the classifier will first determine into which of 
the ten main classes the work falls. If the subject is copper, he must decide 
whether it relates to the science of copper (class 5, i.e., 500-599), the technology 
of copper (class 6), the economics of the copper industry (class 3), artistic 
work in copper (class 7), or even copper in the Koran (class 2). Having chosen 
the proper main class, then, excluding all other main classes from his mind, 
he determines into which of its divisions the book falls. If the subject is copper 
technology, it may be copper as an engineering material (division 62, i.e., 
620-629), fabrication of articles in copper (67), copper in hardware (68), in 
building (69). Then in the same way he determines the proper section, subsec- 
tion, and subsubsection, until he has come to the most specific number, used 
by or appropriate to the library, that will encompass the subject of the work. 
(See also section 10 on reduction.) Even if that number is less specific than 
the subject of the work in hand, he has found the right place. Possibly a 
future expansion will give an even more detailed number. For example, a 
work on the infinitive in the English language belongs under 425, even though 
425 encompasses all of English grammar. 

At each step on the way the classifier should look carefully at the notes 
and directions, making certain that he has not followed a false trail, perhaps 
even chosen the wrong main class. He should not depend solely on the three 
main summaries or on any of the special summaries; they exist only to speed 



him to tentative decisions and lack the close distinctions that must be consid- 
ered before any decision is final. 

If he knows the schedules well, the classifier may start at once with a specific 
number. In that case it is most important that he go up the hierarchical ladder, 
testing at each level to see if the particular subject of his book belongs within 
the concept named and described. Whether he goes up or down he should 
analyze every step, not overlooking centered entries (which are readily identi- 
fied by the inch-long lines preceding them and the indicators adjacent to 
them). He should read carefully every heading and note. 

If the classifier's approach in a given situation is through the index, he should 
first locate the entry for the subject, then examine the subheads under it for 
the proper aspect. If, for example, his work is on copper, he will find under 
"Copper" various aspects, subaspects, and subsubaspects. Finding the most 
specific one that characterizes his work, he can then turn to the correct part 
of the schedules and analyze the specific number that appears to fit. The 
more reliable approach, however, is to go directly to the schedules, using 
the index if necessary to locate the proper discipline; only when he is uncertain 
about the relevance of a particular part of the schedules is it recommended 
that the classifier turn to the index. For more detailed information on use of 
the index, see section 11. 

A full description of the important features of the headings and notes follows 

in sections 8.2-8.6. 

8.2 Headings. Each heading consists of a word or phrase so inclusive that 
it covers all subordinate topics and entries. The actual wording may be incom- 
plete, because, from the principle of hierarchy, the heading must be read as 
part of the larger group that includes it, e.g., at 469 "Portuguese" means 
the Portuguese language, but at 869 the same heading means Portuguese 

literature. 

Two terms in a heading separated by "and," and similarly three or more 
terms separated by commas, are coordinate and mutually exclusive, e.g., in 
Table 2, "Areas" notation 62 Egypt and Sudan, —75563 Prince Edward, Ame- 
lia, Nottoway Counties. If two terms in a heading are separated by a space, 
the first includes but is broader than the second, e.g., in the same table, 
—72 Middle America Mexico, where all of —721-729 comprises Middle 
America, but only — 721-727 comprises Mexico. A term in parentheses is syn- 
onymous or nearly so with the term preceding it, e.g., — 691 Madagascar 
(Malagasy Republic). 

A heading includes the total concept expressed by it, even if some parts 
of that total concept are explicitly provided for in numbers that are not subdivi- 
sions of the number assigned to the heading. Cross references (section 8.58) 
lead the classifier to component parts of the concept which, when dealt with 
separately, are classed in numbers that are not notationally subordinate to 



xl

Editor's Introduction 



the general number, and the presence of a cross reference is a clear sign 
that a part of the main subject is dispersed in this way. For example, 820 
Literatures of English . . . language is followed by a cross reference, "For 
American literature in English, see 810. " This combination constitutes a clear 
directive to the classifier: class a work on English-language literature of Britain 
here in 820 and its subdivisions, class a work on English-language literature 
of Britain and America here in 820, but class a work on English-language 
literature of America in 810. In like fashion "574 Biology; For evolution, see 
575; . . . zoological sciences, 590" says: class general works on biology in 574 
and its subdivisions, but works dealing only with evolution in 575, works dealing 
only with zoological sciences in the 590s. (See also section 8.511 on comprehen- 
sive works.) 

8.21 The word "specific. " When the word "specific" appears in a heading — 
or, for that matter, in a note — it usually means that here are classed works 
on individual instances of the subject named; works dealing collectively with 
a number of instances of the subject are in such cases classed in some other 
notation earher in the schedule or higher in the hierarchy. For example, 693.8 
"Construction for specific purposes" is a number with subdivisions but not 
in itself to be used, inasmuch as a work on construction for several specific 
purposes, with a chapter devoted to each, would be classed in 690. On the 
other hand, when the text says "various specific," works dealing collectively 
with a number of instances of the subject are to be classed in the number 
at hand. For example, 693 "Construction in various specific materials" has 
subdivisions and is itself to be used for a work on construction in several 
diflFerent materials, e.g., in masonry, in wood, in tiles, in metals, with a chapter 
devoted to each. 

8.3 Definitions, scope notes, example notes. In some instances a 
heading requires, for complete understanding, the limitations stated in the 
note following it, e.g., 790.068 Recreation centers: "Indoor and outdoor." Oth- 
ers are followed by definitions, e.g., 330 Economics: "The science of human 
behavior as it relates to utilization of scarce means for satisfaction of needs 
and desires through production, distribution, consumption." When no defini- 
tion is given, the term is understood to be used as delimited by its subdivisions, 
or as defined in Webster's Third New International Dictionary of the English 
Language, or in other general unabridged dictionaries. 

Other headings are followed by scope notes enumerating specific qualifica- 
tions applicable to the subject and its subdivisions, e.g., 631.2 Agricultural 
structures: "Description, use, place in agriculture" of farmhouses (631.21), of 
barns (631.22), and of other structures. These aspects of agricultural buildings 
are thus difi^erentiated from the architectural aspects; classification of farm- 
houses in 728.67 and of barns in 728.922 when considered architecturally is 
governed by part of the scope note under 725-728: "interdisciplinary works 
on design and construction." 



still other headings are followed by notes giving examples that explain the 
heading by indicating the kinds of entities that the heading names or describes, 
e g 025.313 Form [of the catalog]: "Examples: card, book, microform, on- 
li^'"; 025.315 Structure [of the catalog]: "Examples: divided, unified, clas- 

'' When the heading bears little resemblance to the heading used for the 
same concept in the previous edition of the Classification a note appears 
inScating the former heading, e.g., 331.128 Placement: "Former headmg: 

Obtaining employment." , . ,. • j 

All such notes have hierarchical force; that is, they must be taken into consid- 
eration in analyzing subordinate entries. . j. „ , ^ u ^ KJor^r 

8.4 INCLUSION NOTES. Notes beginning "Including do not have hierar- 
chical force. They are enumerations of subordinate topics, not obviously part 
of the heading, on which there is as yet insufficient literature to justify separate 
provision. For example, 351.778 [Government] control of product hazards is 
a topic that has separate subdivisions for food, medicines, cosmetics, but in- 
cludes also textiles, toys, household appliances. These latter topics are for the 
present given "standing room" in the general number awaiting the time when 
there is literary warrant for giving each its own number. 

8.5 Instruction notes. Notes of instruction are of various kinds, as enu- 
merated below. . ^ . ^. 

8 51 Class here notes. An instruction to class a certam topic or concept 
"here" has hierarchical force; it means, class the specified topic or concept 
in "this" number and /or appropriate subdivisions of this number. 

The note is used to indicate subordinate concepts, not obviously part ot 
the heading, that are of a general nature and have applicability to the subj^e^* 
and its subdivisions; for example, 725-728 [Architecture of] specific types of 
structures: "Class here specific structures," which means class architecture 
of specific buildings in any appropriate subdivision, e.g., of a specific parhamen- 
tary building in 725.11, of a specific department store in 725.21, of a specific 
synagogue in 726.3, of a specific castle in 728.81. 

The class here note is used also to make provision for concepts that overlap 
the heading, e.g., "Areas" notation 78 Western United States: Class here 
Rocky Mountains." Rocky Mountains and Western United States overlap 
like two intersecting circles, because the concept Rocky Mountains is both 
narrower and broader than the heading to which it is assigned, being located 
in only four of the eight states enumerated under -78 but also in other areas 
outside —78, such as Arizona and Alberta. ^ , . . r ^ 

8.511 Comprehensive and interdisciplinary works. One kind of concept 
that overlaps the heading is that of comprehensive works, e.g., 2bU: L>iass 
here comprehensive works on Christian church"; 612: "Class here comprehen- 
sive works on anatomy and physiology." By its nature, such a note is always 
followed by a class elsewhere note or a cross reference (sections 8.57 and

8.58) leading to those component parts of the topic treated comprehensively 
at this point that will be found in other numbers. 

A special kind of comprehensive work is the interdisciplinary work, which 
deals with the topic from the point of view of more than one discipline, e.g., 
669: "Class here interdisciplinary works on metals," which is to say, class here 
and in appropriate subdivisions works dealing with metals, or a specific metal, 
from such diverse aspects as prospecting, mining, physics, chemistry, geology, 
metallurgy, industrial fabricating, art work, economics. For more detail, see 
section 9.2. 

8.52 Optional provision. Because there are sometimes legitimate reasons 
for placing works in numbers other than those provided in the schedules, 
some alternatives are provided, with the editors' preference clearly shown. 
For example, 936.2 Southern Britain to [the year] 410: "If preferred [i.e., if 
the classifier prefers], class in 942.012." At 942.012 "(Use of this number is 
optional; [the editors] prefer 936.2)." The preferred number will be used on 
Library of Congress cataloging records, and usually in the British National 
Bibliography and similar services. More detail on options is given in section 
13.21. 

8.53 Use of more than one in standard subdivisions. Standard subdivi- 
sions, which are enumerated in Table 1, generally consist of two or more 
digits of which the first is 0, and may be used with any number at any level 
whenever they are appropriate. (See section 8.7 for application of standard 
subdivisions.) But in some classes, for various reasons, notation beginning with 
is or has previously been used for another purpose, in which case the classifier 
is instructed to use two Os, e.g., "Use 335.001-335.009 for standard subdivi- 
sions." On occasion he is instructed to use for this purpose three or even 
four Os. This instruction does not have hierarchical force, but applies only 
exactly as stated, except under the circumstances described below in the second 
example in section 8.545. 

Sometimes the use of a for another purpose appears inconspicuously in 
an add note (see section 8.54). For example, at 327.3-.9, is added to 327.41 
foreign policies and relations of the United Kingdom before the addition of 
another area number for France 327.41044, or the United States 327.41073, 
or the Far East 327.4105. It follows that standard subdivisions on United King- 
dom foreign policy must be classed in 327.41001-327.41009. Otherwise 
327.4105 would be doing double duty, for general works on foreign relations 
between the United Kingdom and the Far East and also for serial publications 
on foreign policies and relations in general of the United Kingdom. The classi- 
fier is reminded of this requirement by an asterisk and footnote, "Use extra 
Os for standard subdivisions; see instructions at beginning of Table 1." 

8.54 Synthesis of notation (number building). Frequently a note ofi"ers 
the opportunity to expand a given number or series of numbers even though 



the subdivisions are not specifically enumerated in the schedules. The proce- 
dures to be observed are as follows: 

8.541 Add from tables. Tables 2-7 supply digits which the classifier may 
add to certain numbers in the schedules to make them more specific. The 
numbers in these auxiliary tables are not class numbers and the classifier should 
never use them by themselves. Each instruction indicates exactly what may 
be added, from which table to what base. For example, under 331.291-.299 
Geographical treatment [of wages], there appears the instruction, "Add 'Areas 
notation 1-9 from Table 2 to base number 331.29." This means that for a 
work on wages in Japan, for example, the number 52 for Japan from Table 
2 is to be placed following 331.29 , which results in the full class number 
331.2952 . Again, under 155.84 [Psychology of] specific racial and ethnic groups, 
is the instruction, "Add 'Racial, Ethnic, National Groups' notation 01-99 from 
Table 5 to base number 155.84," whereby, when the appropriate number 
from the table is added to 155.84, the number for ethnopsychology of Nordics 
is 155.843, of Bretons 155.849168, of Afro-Americans 155.8496073. 

Sometimes combinations for adding twice in succession appear, as at 323.11 
[Relation of state to] racial, ethnic, national groups: "Add 'Racial, Ethnic, Na- 
tional Groups' notation 2-9 from Table 5 to base number 323.11, e.g., relation 
of state to Jews 323.11924 . . . then, unless it is redundant, add and to the 
result add 'Areas' notation 1-9 from Table 2, e.g., relation of state to Jews m 
Germany 323.11924043." 

It will be seen that the base number, to which digits from the table are 
added (e g 331.29), is not necessarily exactly the same as the number appear- 
ing in the number column for the heading (331.291-.299); however, the base 
number is always explicitly stated in the accompanying note. 

Occasionally the base number is less than three digits. In this case, if the 
combined number consists of four or more digits a decimal point must be 
inserted after the third digit. For example, to obtain numbers for geography 
of a specific location, area notations are added to 91. The number for geography 
of Japan will be 915.2, that is 91 (geography) followed by 52 (Japan) with a 
decimal point inserted after the third digit. Or, history (9) of Ohio (771): 977. L 
8.542 Add from schedules. Similarly, the base number is always stated 
in the instruction to create a sequence by adding digits from another sequence 
in the schedules. For example, under 581.19 Biophysics and biochemistry [of 
plants]: "Add to base number 581.19 the numbers following 574.19 in 574.191- 
574.192, e.g., enzymes 581.1925." The procedure to be followed here is: (1) 
in the sequence 574.191-.192 (biophysics and biochemistry in general) the 
number for enzymes is 574.1925; (2) in this notation the numbers following 
574.19 are 25; (3) the classifier adds the digits 25 to the base number 581.19 

to obtain 581.1925 . 
The base numbers in the two sequences are not necessarily of the same

length, e.g., 636.089 Veterinary sciences: "Add to base number 636.089 the 
numbers following 61 in 610-619, e.g., veterinary viral diseases 636.0896925." 
Here the number for viral diseases in the sequence 610-619 is 616.925; ignoring 
the decimal point, the classifier adds the 6925 that follows 61 to 636.089 and 
obtains 636.0896925 . 

Sometimes a complete class number is added to another class number, e.g., 
under 338.47 [Production of secondary] goods and services: "Add 001-999 
to base number 338.47, e.g., textile manufacture 338.47677" (677 being the 
complete number for the technology of textile manufacture). 

Sometimes one "add" must be derived from another "add." For example, 
636.5920 1-.59208 General principles [of turkey husbandry]: "Add to base num- 
ber 636.5920 the numbers following 636.0 in 636.01-636.08." The classifier 
who has a work on erysipelas in turkeys (1) writes down 636.5920 ; (2) adds 
89 from 636.089 to obtain 636.592089 ; (3) then, in accordance with the instruc- 
tion under 636.089 to add to that number the numbers following 61 in 610- 
619, he adds 6942 from 61 6.942 and obtains the result 636.5920896942 . 

8.543 Add from both tables and schedules. Sometimes numbers are de- 
rived by adding first from a table and then from another schedule, or, in 
the reverse order, first from another schedule and then from a table, e.g., 
271 Religious congregations and orders in church history: "Add to base number 
271 the numbers following 255 in 255.01-255.98, e.g., Franciscans in church 
history 271.3; then add . . . and to the result add 'Areas' notation 1-9 from 
Table 2, e.g., Franciscans in United Kingdom 271.3041." 

8.544 General suggestions. The classifier should add only to the extent 
that is appropriate to the sequence that is to be developed. Occasionally some 
numbers in a sequence from which numbers are to be added should be omitted 
because the topics in those numbers are otherwise provided for. For example, 
at 614.59 "[Incidence, distribution, control of] other diseases" means diseases 
other than those already provided for in 614.51-.57; consequently, the classifier 
must exclude from the add note under 614.591-.598 diseases in those numbers, 
and it follows that the correct number for control of influenzas, which from 
the add note might be expected to be 614.59203 (from 616.203), is instead 
614.518. Another example occurs at 551.464, to which the classifier is instructed 
to add the numbers following 163 in "Areas" notation 1636-1637. Application 
of this instruction produces the number 551.46465 for oceanography of the 
Caribbean Sea, but this number should not be used because Caribbean Sea 
is an exception to the basic instruction, as is shown by the exception to the 
add note: "however, class Caribbean Sea . . .in 551.463," where, after applying 
another add note, the classifier obtains the correct number 551.4635. 

The classifier is more likely to construct correct numbers if he ignores the 
decimal point until the final sequence of digits is obtained, after which he 



should insert a point following the third digit. Also, he should never termmate 
a number in anywhere to the right of a decimal point. 

The classifier should combine numbers only when specifically mstructed 
to do so; otherwise he will soon find that he has derived combinations which 
block the orderly use of other numbers. 

Unless there is a contrary instruction, it is permissible to add to a base 
number a building block made of two smaller blocks, but, in order to avoid 
dual meanings of class numbers, it is not permissible to add extensions to 
numbers already consisting of a base number and an addition. For example, 
016/ 505 is correct for a bibUography of science serials, where 05 for serials 
(see sections 5.24 and 8.7) is added to 5[00] for science and the combination 
then added to 016 for bibliography, but 016/.5/05 is not to be used for a 
science bibliography that is issued serially, where 5[00] for science is added 
to 016 for bibliography, and 05 for serials then added to the combination. 
Similarly 380.141/3180952 is correct for commerce in Japanese rice (i.e., rice 
grown in Japan), where 0952 for Japan is added to 633.18 for "ce, and the 
whole (less the initial 63) then added to 380.141 for commerce, but 380.141/ 
318/0952 is not to be used for Japanese commerce in rice, where [63] 3. 18 
for rice is added to 380.141 for commerce, and 0952 for Japan then added 

to the combination. 

8 545 Hierarchical force. Add notes do not have hierarchical force unless 
this fact is specifically stated, e.g., centered entry 420-490 Specific languages: 
"Under each language identified by *, add 'Subdivisions of Individual Lan- 
guages' notation 01-86 from Table 4 to designated base number." Since m 
such cases the instructions are applicable to each subdivision identified by 
an asterisk, they do have hierarchical force. A similar example at 368.1-.8 
combines with the add instruction an instruction to use two Os for standard 
subdivisions, a type of note that otherwise does not have hierarchical force; 

see section 8.53 above. 

8.55 Citation order Many subjects may be subdivided according to more 
than one characteristic, e.g., crop production by process such as tillage, plant- 
ing, harvesting, as well as by kind of crop such as wheat, tobacco, peaches. 
When a given work considers its subject simultaneously according to two or 
more characteristics, e.g., a work on tillage of tobacco, or on planting wheat, 
or on harvesting peaches, the classifier is faced with the problem of which 
characteristic to class by, or whether to class by each characteristic in sequence, 
and if the latter then in which order. Sometimes notes in the schedules give 
him assistance but at other times he must rely on a few general principles, 
and occasionally simply on his judgment. The following rules may serve as a 
guide to determine the correct number for a specific work and to maintain 
consistency:

Dewey Decimal Classification 



(1) Follow stated instructions at the point of application or anywhere above 
that point in the hierarchy. Instructions are most commonly given in the sched- 
ules when the notations for the diflFerent characteristics of division have no 
Os or have the same number of Os (see (2) and (3) below). They may be in 
the form of (a) a table of precedence, (b) an order of precedence note, or (c) 
a regular cross classification note or cross reference. 

(a) An example of a table of precedence appears at 362, telling the classifier 
to place a work on welfare services to mentally ill women veterans in 362.2 
for the mentally ill rather than in 362.86 for veterans or in 362.83 for women. 

(b) An example of an order of precedence note appears at centered entry 
331.3-331.6, telling the classifier who has a work on labor performed by aged 
women of Chinese descent that he should place it in 331.398 for labor by 
aged persons rather than in 331.4 for labor by women or in 331.6251 for 
labor by Chinese. 

(c) An example of a regular cross classification note appears at 331.2, "Class 
. . . conditions of employment of workers with specific personal characteristics 
in 331.3-331.6," which tells the classifier with a work on (for example) night 
labor hy aged Chinese women that he should place it in 331.398 rather than 
in 331.2574 for night work. If the classifier happens to arrive first at 331.398, 
he will find in the first note under 331.3-331.6 that conditions of employment 
of special classes of workers are to be classed here; thus, whether he starts 
at 331.2574 or at 331.398, by checking up the hierarchical ladder he will 
find that the correct number is 331.398. (See also section 8.57, no. (1).) 

The correct number may combine notations for two or, in occasional cases, 
more characteristics. For example, in the discipline 630 Agriculture, a cross 
classification note at 631 Crops and their production tells the classifier to "class 
production of specific crops ... in 633-638," and when he then turns to, 
let us say, 634.25 Peaches, he is informed by an asterisk, a footnote, and an 
instruction at 633-635 to add (see section 8.542) notation from subdivisions 
of 631, so that 631.55 for harvesting is combined with 63 4.25 for peaches to 
produce 63 4.255 for harvesting peaches. Again, at 591 Zoology the classifier 
is told "for specific animals and groups of animals" to "see 592-599," and at 
599 Mammalia he is told to add to 599.0 the numbers following 591, so that 
591.525 for migrations is combined with 599.0 to produce 59 9.0525 for migra- 
tions of mammals. (The note at 591 is a cross reference rather than a cross 
classification note, but serves the same function. See section 8.58.) 

(2) Since in the notation for the development of a subject the digit may 
be used to introduce a change in the basis of division, and since subdivisions 
without are usually more specific than those with it, give precedence to 
subdivisions without notation before those with notation, to one before 
two, to two Os before three. Examples: class manufacture of metal chairs in 



xlviii 



Editor's Introduction 



684.13 Chairs and tables, not in 684.105 Metallic furniture; class doctrines 
of Jehovah's Witnesses on salvation in 234 Salvation, not in 230.992 doctrines 
of Jeho\'ah's Witnesses, and even less so in 230.044 Protestant theology. 

In the rare instances where this general rule for Os is not to be applied 
there is a specific instruction in the schedules. For example, in accordance 
with the instruction at centered entry 262.3-262.4, class government and or- 
ganization of United Methodist Church in 262.076, not 262.3. 

(3) If there are neither stated instructions nor a difference in the number 
of Os (two or more characteristics of division are sometimes provided for in 
notation with the same number of Os as well as in notation with no Os) cite 
by most specific discipline and subject, then by geographic specification, i.e., 
place, then by temporal specification, i.e., time, then by form. Example: Class 
earthquakes in Japan in 551.220952 (551.22 Earthquakes, 0952 Japan), not 
in 555.2 (Geology of Japan). 

It may be observed that, since place and time specifications are mostly shown 
by standard subdivisions 091-099 and 0901-0905 respectively, and since stan- 
dard subdivisions may be used with any subject (see section 8.7)— though not 
place and time subdivisions together except where specifically provided for 
as at 330.9 — it is usually feasible in the notation to show a place or time charac- 
teristic in addition to any other characteristics. 

(4) Lacking any of the foregoing principles, apply the following citation 
order formula, which will generally prove to be reasonable and helpful: class 
by things; kinds of things; parts of things; materials from which the things, 
kinds, or parts are made; properties of the things, kinds, parts, or materials; 
processes within the things, kinds, parts, or materials; operations upon the 
things, kinds, parts, or materials; agents performing such operations. Example: 
Class harvesting of club wheat in 633.117 (Varieties of wheat, including club 
wheat), not in 633.115 (Harvesting of wheat), club wheat being a kind of 
thing and harvesting an operation. 

(5) Sometimes the classifier's life will be made more difficult by his realization 
that none of the foregoing rules reflects the author's intention and emphasis, 
and he will be faced with the temptation to flout the rules. Given adequate 
reason, he should do so. For example, a work on quiltmaking should, according 
to both section (la) above— "Other textile products" in 746.9 before "Needle- 
and handwork" in 746.4— and section (4)— things before operations— be classed 
in 746.97 with bedspreads rather than in 746.46 with quilting; but it is obvious 
that the author's intention is to emphasize the process quilting rather than 
the product quilted bedspreads, and 746.46 is, indeed, the better number. 
(Compare sections 9.1 and 9.2 on emphasis.) 

8.551 Special topics of general applicability. Related to citation order is 
the principle of special topics of general apphcability, i.e., subdivision of a

subject according to a characteristic which has general applicability to other 
subdivisions of the subject which are based on different characteristics. For 
example, breeding (636.7082), housing (636.70831), feeding (636.7084) are all 
special topics in the general subject of dog husbandry (636.7), but they are 
also applicable to the husbandry of any specific kind of dog, e.g., breeding 
terriers (636.755), feeding terriers (636.753). Often the notation provides for 
the special concept not only at the general level, as with dog breeding and 
feeding, but also at specific levels, using the add device to derive the notation, 
e.g., 616.075 diagnosis of diseases, 616. 3999 gout, 616. 3999075 diagnosis of 
gout. For the use of standard subdivision notation 04 for special topics of 
general applicability, see section 8.76. 

8.56 Relocations, A relocation is an adjustment in the schedules resulting 
in the shifting of a topic between successive editions from one number to 
another that differs in respects other than length, e.g., the shift of mosaic 
painting from 751.48 in Edition 18 to 738.5 in Edition 19. Similarly the shift 
from 940.11 to 940.12 of the period 500-799 in European history is a relocation, 
but the extension of 759.06 to 759.0663 for surrealism in painting is not. 

If the relocation is total, i.e., if the entire number formerly used is to be 
vacated, the number is enclosed in square brackets, and there is an instruction 
showing where the subject formerly in that number is now placed, e.g., [751.48] 
Mosaic painting: "Class in 738.5." 

If the relocation is only partial, it is indicated in an instruction note, e.g., 
704.947 Mythology and legend: "Class religious mythology [formerly 7 04.947] 
in 704.948." 

Total relocations are not to be confused with other, similar types of entries 
in square brackets and their instructions. One type, described more fully in 
section 8.73, is entries showing that concepts normally belonging in standard 
subdivision notations are to be placed instead in other numbers, e.g., [720.93] 
[Architecture] in the ancient world: "Do not use; class in 722." Another is 
entries and instructions showing schedule reduction, e.g., [355.229] Woman- 
power: "Number discontinued; class in 355.22"; this is not a relocation, but 
a mere shortening of the number that was assigned to this topic in the previous 
edition. (However, the effect of all these, like that of the class elsewhere notes 
described in section 8.57, is the same: the classifier is instructed to class else- 
where a topic that he may have reason to think he should class at the point 
of instruction.) 

Relocation notes are hierarchical in force at the point of instruction, and 
usually also at the point led to. For example, the note under 614.3, "Class 
[product hazards] in 363.19," tells the classifier that, while the subject was 
formerly in 614.3 and appropriate subdivisions, it is now to be classed in 363.19, 
and in appropriate subdivisions of 363.19 if its treatment at that number war- 



rants it. Since at 363.19 the topic is shown in the heading, it may be classed 
also in the subdivisions of 363.19; ff it had been shown in an inclusion note 
(see section 8.4), the topic would have been classed in 363.19 only and not 
in its subdivisions. 

8.57 Class elsewhere notes. Class elsewhere notes are used for a variety 
of purposes, but in effect all of them instruct the classifier to class in a different 
number topics in some way related to one or more of the topics covered by 
the entry in which the note appears. The chief purposes are the following: 

(1) To avoid inconsistent classification by specifying citation order, as de- 
scribed in section 8.55 (1) (c), e.g., 331.2 Conditions of employment: "Class 

. . conditions of employment of workers with specific personal characteristics 
in 331.3-331.6." 

(2) To show in which single number to class comprehensive works on a 
concept covered by a centered entry (compare section 9.3), e.g., 532.52-532.56 
Flow variations: "Class comprehensive works in 532.51." 

(3) To scatter the subdivisions of a subject, e.g., 778.3 Special kinds of photog- 
raphy: "Class a specific application with the subject, e.g., use of photography 

in astronomy 522.63." 

(4) To indicate related numbers when potential confusion exists, e.g., 371.62 
[School] buildings: "Class architecture of buildings for educational purposes 
in 727." Except when needed to clear up persistent misconceptions, the sched- 
ules make no effort to lead from the subject in one discipline or aspect to 
the same subject in other disciplines; this is the function of the index (see 
section 11). See also section 8.58. 

All class elsewhere notes have hierarchical force. 

8.58 Cross references. Not all subdivisions of a concept are necessarily to 
be found in notations subordinate to that used for the concept as a whole. 
(Compare section 8.2.) Cross references are a special kind of instruction note 
leading the classifier from the stated or implied totality of a given subject to 
component parts of that subject that are provided for elsewhere than in the 
number referred from or numbers directly subordinate to it, e.g., 574 Biology: 
"For botanical sciences, [see] 580; zoological sciences, 590"- 351 Central govern- 
ments: 'Tor specific central governments, see 353-354. " The totality from which 
component parts are separated need not appear in a heading, but may be 
in a note, e.g., 382.7 Tariff policy. Class here comprehensive works on trade 
barriers and restrictions: "For nontarijf barriers to trade, see 382.5. "Like class 
elsewhere notes, cross references are not used to lead from one aspect of a 
subject to another aspect that belongs in a different discipline; they lead only 
from the whole subject to parts of the subject located elsewhere. Only the 
index shows dispersion of a subject by disciplines. 

Some cross references have also the force of cross classification notes; for 



/

Editor's Introduction 



example, the cross reference at 591 Zoology, 'Tor specific animals and groups 
of animals, see 592-599, " is interpreted to mean that everything about a 
specific animal or group of animals is to be classed in the appropriate subdivi- 
sion of 592-599, e.g., migrations of mammals 599.0525, not 591.525. Compare 
section 8.55 (1) (c). 

Cross references have hierarchical force. For example, the cross reference 
from 500, in which are classed comprehensive works on pure and applied 
sciences, to 600, means that any subdivision of 500, in its applied aspect, belongs 
in 600, e.g., applied physics in 621, applied chemistry in 660. 

8.6 Summary of hierarchical force of entries. By the principle of 
hierarchy the heading and notes applying to a given class should apply also 
to ail its subdivisions, but analysis of the difi^erent types of notes in sections 
8.3-8.5 has shown that there are certain exceptions. These exceptions are 
here summarized. The following parts of an entry do not have hierarchical 
force: (1) Inclusion notes (section 8.4); these mention topics not yet requiring 
their own numbers and hence given "standing room" in the main number. 
(2) Instruction notes about (a) the use of more than one for standard subdivi- 
sions (section 8.53), and (b) number building (section 8.54); such instructions 
have hierarchical force only when specifically so designated, in which case 
the subdivisions to which they are applicable are identified by asterisks and 
repeated instructions in footnotes. 

All other parts of an entry have hierarchical force. 

8.7 Standard subdivisions. Having analyzed the number chosen for the 
work in hand through all the steps of its hierarchical ladder, and having decided 
that it is the best and most specific number, the classifier is ready to consider 
what further specification is desirable, i.e., whether any of the standard subdivi- 
sions are applicable. If, for example, the work deals with the subject in the 
United States only, or in Norway or in Fiji, he may add 0973 or 09481 or 
099611, as the case may be. The complete list of standard subdivisions appears 
in Table 1 in this volume. 

8.71 Restrictions. The classifier should observe several important restric- 
tions on the use of standard subdivisions. 

8.711 Nonspecific numbers. The first is that, unless there are instructions 
permitting their use, he should be cautious about adding standard subdivisions 
to a number chosen for a work that deals with a subject more specific than 
the content of the number, i.e., if the subject of the work does not have its 
own specific number. For example, he should class a serial publication on 
architecture of office buildings in 725.2305, but a serial on architecture of 
medical office buildings in 725.23. The reason is that there is the chance that 
in a later edition the subject will be subdivided and he will then face complica- 
tions in adjustment. For example, perhaps in Edition 20 medical office buildings 
will be provided for specifically in some new number such as 725.237, and 



he can then use 725.23705 for a serial on the architecture of medical office 
buildings. 

This restriction generally need not be applied to standard subdivision 0924 
Individual [persons], e.g., Rodin 730.924; even though Rodin does not approxi- 
mate the whole of sculpture, it is unlikely that a separate class number will 
ever be assigned to him. 

Neither need this restriction apply to any number which, because of the 
nature of its subject content, appears unlikely to be given future subdivision, 
e.g., it is permissible to use standard subdivisions with 929.3 for registers alone 
as well as for various kinds of genealogical sources. (See also section 9.1, parts 
(3H4).) 

Neither should this restriction apply if the subject of the work, even though 
less than the whole number, constitutes the greater part of the number ("ap- 
proximates the whole"), or constitutes several subdivisions of it. Nor should 
the restriction apply if the subject of the work overlaps or is broader than 
the heading, as, for example, at 725.33, which is basically the number for 
railroad accessory buildings but is also used for comprehensive works on rail- 
road buildings; standard subdivisions on either concept may be classed in 
725.3301-.3309. 

Contrary or special instructions are to be followed when given, e.g., at 760, 
where 760.01-.09 are to be used for standard subdivisions of the broader con- 
cept in the heading, graphic arts, and 760.1-.9 for standard subdivisions of 
the narrower concept, printmaking and prints. 

8.712 Redundancy. A second restriction is that the classifier should not 
add standard subdivisions when they are redundant, e.g., if the number already 
means technique, it is unnecessary for him to add standard subdivision 028 
Techniques, procedures, apparatus, equipment, materials; if it already means 
carpentry, as at 694, it is unnecessary to add 024694 for works for carpenters, 

8.713 Two or more. The editors recommend that the classifier not add 
one standard subdivision to another standard subdivision unless there are spe- 
cific instructions to do so. If the classifier finds that two or more standard 
subdivisions are applicable to a particular work, he should use the table of 
precedence at the beginning of Table 1 to determine which one he should 
use. And if for some reason he feels he must use more than one, that table 
indicates the order in which to use them. 

Even if standard subdivisions in their strictest sense are not involved in 
any of the situations described above, the editors recommend that the classifier 
not add notation for place twice, except when the work deals with a topic 
of one place (which is really a subject qualification) in another place (which 
is truly a geographic specification), e.g., an exhibit of French paintings in 
New York City 759.407401471. Needless to say, this recommendation is not 
in eflFect where specific instructions authorize the double use of area notation.

e.g., 327.41073 for foreign relations between United Kingdom and United 

States. 

8.72 Extended meanings. Although it is their standard meanings that make 
these subdivisions "standard," sometimes a particular standard subdivision 
when applied to a given subject may logically be assigned one or more mean- 
ings that are extensions of and compatible with the basic meaning, and the 
classifier will then find in the schedules an entry or group of entries specifying 
the extension. For example, in 669.0282-.0284 a special expansion of standard 
subdivision 028 is provided for techniques, procedures, apparatus, equipment 
applicable to metallurgy, it being specified by note that the usual "materials" 
of — 028 are classed elsewhere. Other examples are the substantial extensions 
in 701-709. 

8.73 Irregular notation. Sometimes a concept ordinarily placed in a stan- 
dard subdivision number is found instead with an irregular notation; most 
such instances date from earlier editions of the DDC, prepared before the 
table of standard subdivisions became as detailed as it now is. These instances 
are noted under the numbers where the classifier would normally expect to 
find them. Examples: 

[747.09] Historical and geographical treatment 

Do not use; class in 747.2 
373.09 Historical and geographical treatment 

Class treatment by specific continents, countries, localities in 

373.3-373.9 (no^ 373.093-373.099) 

See also section 8.56, 

The warning in section 8.711 to be cautious in using standard subdivisions 
for a work that deals with less than the whole subject covered by the number 
applies equally to those situations where standard subdivision concepts, includ- 
ing area and time specification, appear in irregular notation. 

It is obvious that the classifier should not use a standard subdivision until 
he has made sure from the schedules that it has not been assigned an irregular 
notation or meaning. 

8.74 Use of more than one 0, See section 8.53. 

8.75 Subdivision. When a standard subdivision or span of standard subdivi- 
sions is specifically named in the schedules, it is understood that, unless there 
are contrary instructions, the usual subdivisions to the standard subdivision 
may be used, e.g., 332.67309 Historical and geographical treatment is to have 
temporal divisions 01-05 from 0901-0905 in Table 1, and "Areas" notation 
1-9 from Table 2, added to it the same as any standard subdivision 09: interna- 
tional investment in the 1970s 332.67309047, international investment in India 



332.6730954. In similar manner 510.1 is to be broken down into 510.12, 510.13, 
510.14, 510.148, and so on exactly like standard subdivision 01. 

8.76 Special topics of general applicability. One standard subdivision re- 
quires special mention, 04 Special topics of general applicability. As the note 
in Table 1 points out: "Use this subdivision only when it is specifically set 
forth in the schedules. [Contrary to section 8.713] add other standard subdivi- 
sions — 01-09 to it and its subdivisions as required." This device is introduced 
at those places where no other kind of notation is feasible for this kind of 
topic, and it follows the rules for citation order in section 8.55. 

8.8 Subject not provided for. The fields of knowledge grow so fast 
that any edition of the DDC is outdated before it appears. There is little 
doubt that the classifier will have works on subjects for which the schedules 
and index have provided no place either explicitly or implicitly. He should 
not make up his own number for such a subject: the next edition could easily 
place the subject in a different number and use the number he devised for 
something else. The classifier's guiding principle is to follow exactly the proce- 
dure outlined in section 8.1: to determine first the correct main class, then 
the correct division, then the correct section, continuing until he has arrived 
at the most specific entry that will contain the subject of his work. If he does 
this carefully, he will rarely be proved wrong. He should always use the most 
specific number possible in the schedules, even if it is only a three-digit number. 
Then, if the editors supply a more detailed number later, he may use it by 
simply adding digits to the number originally chosen. Two examples from 
the past may be illustrative. Edition 16 provided for astronautical engineering 
in 629.1388 (later relocated to 629.4) but for no other aspect of humankind 
in space. A classifier with a work on bioastronautics (the physiology of human- 
kind in space) might have been tempted to class it in 629.1388, but he should 
have used 612.01 or even just 612, which was later expanded to 612.0145 
for the precise subject. Edition 17 provided no place for DNA and RNA, but 
a classifier following the principles outlined here would have used 574.873, 
or more likely 574.87, and found his decision confirmed by the appearance 
of both as "included" topics under 574.8732 in Edition 18 and by the specific 
provision of 574.873282-.873283 in the present edition. 

A third example is a classic illustration of what not to do. In the 14th and 
prior editions 323.1, the relation of the state to races within it, was not devel- 
oped in as much detail as it would be later, and 301 Sociology was hardly 
developed at all. As a consequence many classifiers placed works on the sociol- 
ogy and political relations of Jews not in "standing room" in the broad numbers 
301 and 323.1 respectively but in 296, which by the principle of hierarchy 
should have been reserved for the religion of the Jews. 

8.9 The value of position. The importance to the classifier of an aware- 
ness of the meaning of schedule structure cannot be overstated, and the princi-

pies are here restated for emphasis. Regular structure speaks its own clear 
and distinct language, reducing the need for complex definitions and instruc- 
tions. The position of a notation, whether for a direct or a general subdivision 
of a topic, imparts a meaning to the provision attached to that notation. (See 
section 8.551, Special topics of general applicability.) 

Direct subdivisions follow superordinate entries without the interposition 
of Os in the notation. The length of the notation is generally a reliable indication 
of the degree of specificity of the entry in relation to its basic discipline. The 
specific entry regardless of length is described by the preceding superordinate 
entries (those with shorter notation) all the way up to the main class. A topic 
subordinate to a broader concept must have all the properties of that broader 
concept, except that it is more specific. The fact that coordination and subordi- 
nation are meaningful is based on the simple premise that in a hierarchical 
system what is true of the whole must be true of each of its parts. 

General subdivisions are usually developed from superordinate entries 
through the introduction into the notation of one or more Os. Standard sub- 
divisions are of this category. General subdivisions always precede direct sub- 
divisions of the entry to which they are subordinate. However, general (0) 
concepts that apply to direct (non-0) subdivisions of that entry must be 
classed with those subdivisions. For example, periodicals on agriculture 
in general are classed in 630.5, while periodicals on crop production are 
classed in 631.05. 

A very few concepts in notation are not general, e.g., 616.201-.208 for 
certain respiratory diseases and 546.401-.403 for two chemical elements. 

9 Complexities in selection of class number. The foregoing rules and princi- 
ples provide a basis for classing a work on one subject in one discipline. How- 
ever, as noted in section 7, analysis of a work may show that it deals with 
two or three or many subjects, considered separately or in their interrelation- 
ships; or with two or more aspects of one or more subjects. If the DDC is 
being used as a shelf classification, obviously the classifier must choose one 
place and class the work there. Since most libraries employ other types of 
subject control in addition to shelf classification, such as a subject catalog, 
either alphabetical or classified, it is likely that other leads will be provided 
through such tools. Specific instructions for classing a whole variety of com- 
pound and complex subjects are provided in such sources as W. S. Merrill's 
Code for Classifiers, 2d edition (Chicago, American Library Association, 1939) 
and Guide to Use of [16th edition of] Dewey Decimal Classification, Based 
on the Practice of the Decimal Classification Office at the Library of Congress 
(Lake Placid Club, N.Y., Forest Press, 1962). Because it is impossible to antici- 
pate all combinations, or even a considerable percentage of them, a few basic 
principles, from which all the specific rules stem, are here set forth for 
guidance. 



9.1 More than one subject. 

(1) The classifier should class a work dealing with two or more interrelated 
subjects with the one that receives the chief emphasis. This emphasis may 
be a reflection of the relative amount of space devoted to each subject, or 
of the author's purpose, or of both. For example, as a general rule the classifier 
should class with Keats an analytical work dealing with Shakespeare's influence 
on Keats. The author's purpose in such a work may be said to be an exposition 
of Keats's work. Even though the treatment of Shakespeare may actually oc- 
cupy more space, if the author's purpose is pervasive throughout then greater 
weight should be given to purpose, which would place the work with other 
works on Keats. But if the treatment of Keats occupies only a small portion 
of the work, say less than a third, and does not permeate the portion that 
deals specifically with Shakespeare, then the preponderance of space devoted 
to Shakespeare should carry more weight than the author's purpose of explain- 
ing Keats, and the work should be placed with other works on Shakespeare. 
Such decisions are sometimes very difficult to make. 

(2) The classifier should class a work dealing with two or more subjects 
that are not particularly interrelated, e.g., a description of the beliefs and 
practices of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, with the one that preponderates. 

(3) If no emphasis or preponderance is readily apparent, he should class a 
work on three or more subjects that are all subdivisions of a broader subject 
with the broader one, e.g., a work dealing approximately equally with Hin- 
duism (294.5), Judaism (296), and Islam (297) in 290. If the three or more 
constitute the major part of the broader subject, he may use standard subdivi- 
sions as if his work approximated the whole broader subject (see section 8.711). 
If the three or more are not part of a single broader subject or discipline, 
he should class the work in the 000s, e.g., in 001 or 030 or 050 or 080. 

(4) If no emphasis or preponderance is readily apparent and there are no 
contrary instructions, he should class a work on two subjects with the one 
coming first in the schedules, e.g., a work dealing equally with Judaism and 
Islam in 296; however, if those two subjects are both subdivisions of a broader 
subject and together constitute the major portion of the broader subject, he 
should class the work with that broader subject (and use applicable standard 
subdivisions as if his work approximated the whole broader subject), e.g., a 
work dealing with lizards and snakes but not with the relatively unimportant 
tuataras should be classed in 597.94 with the encompassing Lepidosauria rather 
than in 597.95 lizards. Some classifiers prefer to class any work on two subjects 
that are both part of a broader one with the broader, and some prefer to 
class such a work with the one treated first in the work, but these procedures 
are not recommended. 

9.11 Historical periods constitute a recurring problem. Assuming there is 
no preponderance or emphasis, and using 941.06-.08 as an example:

9.12 One part approximates the whole. In certain subjects, one subtopic 
may be so large, or so often written about, or so emphasized in library materials, 
that it can usually be said to approximate the whole subject. Works on such 
subjects should be classed with the whole except where the work itself empha- 
sizes that it deals with the part. Examples: (1) Many works on "natural history" 
deal briefly with rocks and minerals, but 90% with plants and animals; many 
others deal with plants and animals only. Class in 500 unless the work makes 
a point of being about living organisms, in which case class in 574. (2) Most 
works on "prison economy" deal with prisons for male adults as the norm. 
Class in 365.6 unless emphasis is laid on the fact that the work is about prisons 
for adult male oflFenders (365.44). (3) In the years before 1803 the United 
States was limited to the area east of the Mississippi River, for which the 
area number is — 74. Class general U.S. histories of the period in 973.2-.4, 
using 974+ and 975+ only for works frankly avowing that they are state (or 
colony) histories. Note use of 973.21-.22 for founding of colonies as part of 
U.S. history. 

9.2 More than one aspect. 

(1) The classifier should place an interdisciplinary work, dealing with a sub- 
ject within two or more disciplines, i.e., from two or more points of view or 
aspects, with the aspect that receives the most emphasis. For example, a work 
dealing with both the scientific and the engineering principles of electrody- 
namics is classed in 537.6 if the engineering aspects are introduced primarily 
for illustrative purposes, but in 621.31 if the basic scientific theories are intro- 



duced primarily as a preliminary to the author's development of an exposition 
of engineering principles and practices. (See also section 9.4.) 

(2) He should class a work dealing with a subject from two or more aspects, 
but having no apparent emphasis, with the aspect that preponderates. 

(3) He should class a work dealing with a subject from two or more aspects, 
but having no apparent emphasis or preponderance, in accordance with in- 
structions on treatment of interdisciplinary works given in the schedules, when 
such notes occur (compare section 8.511), e.g., interdisciplinary works on abra- 
sive materials in 553.65, as specified at 553. (However, such an instruction is 
not valid and should not be followed unless one of the aspects treated in 
the work is the one properly classed in the number designated for interdiscipli- 
nary use, e.g., 553.65 is not a valid number for an interdisciplinary work on 
abrasive materials unless economic geology is one of the aspects considered 
in the work.) 

(4) Lacking apparent emphasis or preponderance, and lacking specific valid 
instructions on treatment of interdisciplinary works — and relatively few such 
notes appear — the classifier should class a work dealing with a subject from 
two or more aspects with the underlying, broader, or purposive discipline, 
e.g., science underlies technology, art is broader than belles-lettres, utilization 
is the purpose of fabrication, hence, prefer 500s to 600s, 700s to 800s, 330 
to 600s, 794.1 to 688.741. 

(5) Lacking any other principle, he should class in the discipline that comes 
first in the schedules. 

To class a work on two or more interrelated subjects considered from two 
or more aspects, the classifier may have to apply a combination of the foregoing 
rules, and he should not overlook the possibiUties of main class 0. 

9.3 Comprehensive works on concepts in centered entries. Some- 
times there are steps in the successive divisions of a discipline or subject for 
which positions in the lengthening notation are not available. These are repre- 
sented by spans of numbers in centered entries. (Compare section 5.141.) 
Since in a shelf classification a given book can have but one class number, 
every centered entry is followed by a note stating what single number the 
classifier should use for comprehensive works on the concept expressed in 
the entry. (See also section 8.57 (2).) The basis for the editors' choice of number 
varies, since each case is dependent on the schedule structure for the particular 
subject. The classifier will observe that the comprehensive number specified 
may be (1) the next higher number in the hierarchy, e.g., diseases of urinary 
system (616.61-.64) in 616.6, England ("Areas" notation 421-428) in notation 
42; (2) a general, or 0, subdivision of the next higher number, e.g., woodwind 
instruments (788.5-.9) in 788.05; (3) a preceding specific number, e.g., flow 
variations (532.52-532.56) in 532.51; (4) the first or one of the other numbers

subordinate to the centered entry, e.g., libraries for educational institutions 
(027.7-027.8) in 027.7. 

9.4 Applications. The classifier should class the application of a principle, 
concept, science, procedure, or technique with the principle, concept, science, 
procedure, or technique to which it is applied. For example, general principles 
of radio communication engineering are classed in 621.3841, and special devel- 
opments of radio engineering, such as the circuitry and instruments used in 
space communication, in 621.384197; but the application of space communica- 
tion to (i.e., its use in) astronautics is classed in 629.437 and 629.457, and 
the application of astronautics to weather forecasting in 551.6354. 

9.5 Works related to other works. The classifier should ordinarily 
place with the original work translations, abridgments, criticisms, and reviews 
of it, commentaries on it, indexes and concordances to it. However, works 
about manuscripts and book rarities should be classed in 090, and works about 
the art in a book with the appropriate art. Since an adaptation modifies the 
original work in form, scope, presentation, and possibly language, it may or 
may not be classed with it, depending upon the amount and kind of modifica- 
tion. It is normally the function of the book number to distinguish among 
such related works. 

10 Reduction. It has been noted that one of the valuable features of the 
DDC notation is its adaptability to both close and broad classification. How 
close or how broad the classification of a specific library should be is a matter 
of administrative determination. While bibliographies and classed catalogs 
should generally be highly detailed, it is unlikely that any Hbrary, no matter 
how large or specialized, will in its shelf classification follow the present edition 
to its fullest expanded detail in every section. Most libraries using these sched- 
ules for shelving purposes will probably reduce their expansions in some or 
many parts. The detail supplied herein is intended to be more rather than 
less than what most libraries will require, because it is relatively easy to cut 
back, either from the schedules themselves or from the numbers recommended 
by central classification services for specific titles, but it is not easy, or advisable, 
to expand beyond what is officially provided. (See also section 13.34.) According 
to the printed schedules, a work on the fresh-water plants of Lake Okeechobee 
would be classed in 581.92975939, a number of substantial usefulness in a 
classed catalog, but for shelving purposes likely to be required only for a botani- 
cal library or a general library with a very large collection in botany; most 
libraries will be adequately served by 581.929 or even 581.92. 

10.1 How TO REDUCE NOTATION. The classifier should never reduce the 
notation to less than the most specific three-digit number, no matter how 
small his collection may be. 

The classifier should cut at a point that will bring about a useful grouping. 
This requires special care when applied to synthesized numbers. For example. 



if the library has a large collection on the subject of wages, the classifier may 
find it desirable to place a work on wages in the cotton textile industry in 
331.287721, while in smaller collections he may find 331.2877 (wages in the 
textile industry) or 331.287 (wages in manufacturing) or 331.28 (wages by 
occupation) to be useful groupings. However, it is doubtful if 331.28772 (wages 
in textile industries using seed-hair fibers) would prove very useful. 

Many librarians consider geographic breakdown beyond the level of country 
unnecessarily detailed except in 930-990 for general history and 913-919 for 
geography. Indeed, with a quite small collection the classifier may consider 
330.94 satisfactory for works on economic conditions in all or any part of 

Europe. 

A number should never be reduced so that it ends in a anywhere to the 
right of the decimal point, since such a is meaningless. 

The classifier should be sure that when he cuts he does just that; he should 
not change digits. For example, if his collection of works on history of Norway 
is so small that he does not wish to take advantage of the difi^erentiation pro- 
vided by 948.2, 948.3, 948.4, he should not use 948.1 as a general gathering 
place for all works on the subject, even though it is headed "Norway"; instead 
he should cut right down to 948. If he uses 948.1, he will be obliged, if future 
growth requires that his works on Norway be divided, to remove the ''1" 
and substitute "2", "3", or "4". 

The classifier should record in the schedules all decisions for reduction. This 
may be done by drawing a line through the numbers in the number column 
to cut off^ the digits that are not to be used, or by canceling add notes. The 
classifier should not try to record decisions of this nature in the index. 

10.2 Segmentation in centralized services. To assist classifiers who 
have neither the time nor the inclination to make cuts, Dewey Decimal num- 
bers recorded since 1967 on Library of Congress catalog cards, printed catalogs, 
and MARC tapes, and since 1971 in the British National Bibliography (see 
section 12) have been presented in from one to three segments. This service 
enables those libraries that find some DDC notations excessively long for their 
purposes to cut the numbers meaningfully. Places are designated in the nota- 
tion at which libraries of various sizes may find it desirable to terminate the 
number. 

(1) Many numbers are printed in one segment; it is recommended that 
libraries of all sizes consider using such numbers without reduction. (2) Other 
numbers are printed in two segments; it is recommended that small libraries, 
or libraries with small collections in the specific subject, consider using only 
the first segment of such numbers, and all other libraries the whole number. 
(3) Still other numbers are printed in three segments; it is recommended 
that small libraries, or libraries with small collections in the specific subject, 
consider using the first segment of such numbers, that medium-sized libraries. 



Ix

ti;.i:if*iiu:ifrt.r:; 



Dewey Decimal Classification 



or libraries with moderate-sized collections in the specific subject, consider 
using the number made up of the first two segments, and that large libraries, 
or libraries with large collections in the subject, either use the whole number, 
or, in very long numbers, if they wish, omit one or more complete synthetic 
elements from the last segment (see second following paragraph). 

Segmenting is shown by prime marks; it must be emphasized that these 
marks are not part of the notation. For example, with 305.8*951 '073, libraries 
making cuts at the recommended places in the notation will mark their cards 
and books 305.8 or 305.8951; while 305.8951073 will be used if no reduction 
is desired. 

Segments on LC cards, with many exceptions, consist of the base number 
appearing in the abridged edition, the base number in the full edition and 
the various synthetic elements that together make up a complete DDC num- 
ber, e.g., 331.88, 331.88' 12, 331.88'0973, 331.88' 12'92. Since there are never 
more than three segments, the final one may consist of more than one synthetic 
element, as in 331.88 '12 '920973. 

This basis for segmentation is followed on the assumption that small libraries 
generally consider 5-digit numbers to be of maximum desirable length, and 
that medium-sized libraries generally consider 7-digit numbers to be of maxi- 
mum desirable length. Some recommendations provide numbers longer than 
this, but they occur relatively infrequently. 

11 Index. In order to make best utilization of the index, which will be 
found in volume 3, the classifier should know what he may expect to find in 
it, how it is organized, and how to use it. The index is highly structured but 
will furnish much assistance to the classifier who understands it. 

11. 1 Basic content. The index contains an entry for every significant 
term named in the schedules and tables, with leads, sometimes through several 
successive referrals, to many aspects that are named or implied by add notes. 
Class numbers are given for most subjects that have their own numbers in 
the schedules and for many subjects whose numbers are obtained through 
number building. However, it is not feasible to include in the index every 
possible aspect even for those topics that are included, and still keep it within 
a reasonable size. The index does not include all names of persons, cities, 
organizations, minerals, plants, animals, chemical compounds, drugs, manufac- 
tured articles, and similar enumerations. 

1 1.2 Relativity. The index is considered relative (and is traditionally 
known as the "relative index") because of its inverse relationship to the sched- 
ules. Whereas in the schedules the different aspects of a subject are scattered 
according to discipline, in the index they are brought together under the 
name of the subject, with their various locations in the schedules indicated. 
For example, if the classifier has a work on copper and looks under that term, 
he will find many aspects and subaspects, including arts, chemistry, materials, 



Ixii 



Editor's Introduction 



metallurgy, mining, and products, each leading to one or more specific precise 
numbers in the schedules. 

11.3 Cross references. In order to conserve space but still provide a 
maximum amount of information, the index utilizes many cross references, 
both direct and generalized. 

Direct references are of two kinds, those that refer to a different term of 
the same level, and those that refer up to a term on a broader level. Those 
in the first category usually refer to a synonym or a variant spelling, e.g., 
Hansen's disease ^^^ Leprosy, Keramic ^^^ Ceramic, Underground s[ee] a[lsd[ 
Subterranean. Refer up references are supplied to help the classifier find the 
proper location for specific topics that do not have their own numbers in 
the schedules and to alert him to additional aspects which because of space 
limitations cannot be repeated in the index under countless specific headings. 
In some cases references continue upward in two or more successive steps. 
This type of reference is possible in the index because of the hierarchical 
principle on which the schedules are based, whatever is true of a whole being 

true also of its parts. 

Generalized (or scatter) references are used freely to lead to applications, 

kinds, uses, occurrences of the topic. 

Examples of cross references follow: 

Under "Copper compounds plant nutrition" is a direct reference to see 
"Trace elements plant nutrition." While the two terms are not synonymous, 
there is no number uniquely assigned to copper compounds in this context, 
and they, along with manganese, zinc, boron and certain other compounds, 
are always classed in the numbers assigned to the broader concept Trace 
elements. The classifier turning to "Trace elements plant nutrition" will find 
two numbers in 581, one for plant physiology and the other for plant pathology, 
and a further reference to see also specific plants. This reference reflects the 
cross reference in the schedules at 581 that instructs the classifier to class all 
the general principles of botany (including plant nutrition) as they apply to 
specific plants and groups of plants in the appropriate numbers under 582- 
589. See section 8.58. {''Sm. spec, plants" i^ a short way of saying "see also 
specific plants and groups of plants.") Thus the classifier seeking in the index 
numbers to use for copper compounds in plant nutrition has been given the 
two numbers 581.213356 for pathology and 581.13356 for physiology of plants 
in general, and has been told that copper compounds in nutrition of any specific 
plant or group of plants is to be classed with works on that plant or group 
(many of which will be found in the index under their own names). 

Often a subject has its own number(s) for one or more aspects, but in other 
aspects shares a number or numbers with a broader concept (unlike the concept 
Copper elements, which in all plant nutrition aspects shares the numbers 
used for the broader concept Trace elements). In such a case, the specific 



Ixiii

Dewey Decimal Classification 



Editor's Introduction 



numbers that apply are given under the name of the subject. The other aspects 
are covered by generaUzed references, which tell the classifier: for "'other 
aspects see, "or for ''miscellaneous aspects ^^^"the term for the broader con- 
cept. Turning to the broader concept the classifier will usually find some num- 
bers that he can ignore, because they are shorter and broader versions of 
the same numbers he has already found under the narrow concept; but he 
will also find new numbers. 

For example, under Apples the classifier will find 634.1 1 for culture, 641.341 1 
for food in general, 641.6411 for domestic preparation, 664.80411 for commer- 
cial preparation, and the reference ''other aspects see Rosaceae; also Fruits." 
Under Fruits he will find 634, 641.34, 641.64, and 664.8, all of which are 
repetitions at a broader level of numbers already found under Apples. He 
will also find several new numbers, such as 634.987 for fruits as forest products, 
636.0874 for fruits as animal feeds, and 641.41-.47 for domestic preservation 
of fruits, all of which, of course, include apples. Under Rosaceae he will find 
no repeated numbers, but several new ones, such as 583.372 for botany, and 
the reference "other aspects see Plants." Under Plants he will find three num- 
bers for art representation, one for conservation techniques, one for landscape 
design, and several for literary treatment; all of these numbers may be used 
for plants, for specific families of plants such as Rosaceae, and for specific 
Rosaceae such as apples. Under literary treatment the classifier is led still 
further to Natural phenomena. 

Another example that the classifier may wish to trace through the index is 
Beavers, which will lead him to Sciuromorpha, thence to Rodentia, thence 
to Animals. At all levels except Beavers new numbers are brought in for consid- 
eration, and at both Rodentia and Animals old numbers are also repeated at 
shorter length on broader levels. 

In many cases when only one aspect of a subject is entered in the index, 
a generalized reference suggests the possibihty of other aspects, e.g., "Abbrevi- 
ated longhand writing systems 653.2; see also specific applications e.g. Practical 
pharmacy"; "Accelerometers aircraft engineering 629.1352; see also other spe- 
cific usesr But in the case of "Aladdin ovens cookery 641.588," the printing 
of "cookery" on a separate line is expected to remind the classifier that other 
aspects, such as manufacture, are possible, even though not mentioned. 

Some of the numbers in the example under Apples are illustrative of synthe- 
sized, or built, numbers, e.g., 641.3411. Synthesized numbers are included 
in the index for many concepts that may be commonly sought. However, it 
is not feasible to include in the index all of the possible specific numbers 
that may be derived, especially in the case of subjects whose numbers may 
be extended by the addition of notations for very many specific topics. There 
will still be plenty of cases where the classifier must use the information at 
hand to build the number himself. For example, under the index entry Eco- 



nomics there appear Biblical treatment 220.833, curriculums 375.33, journal- 
ism 070.44933, libraries 026.33 (all of the 33s coming from the addition of 
the basic number for economics 330), and the instruction for other aspects 
to see Social sciences. Under the latter term are found most of the same num- 
bers (ending in 3 instead of 33), and also library classification 025.463, museol- 
ogy 069.93, subject headings 025.493. To derive the number for library classifi- 
cation of economics, it is necessary to extend 025.46 by adding 33[0], the 
full number for economics. 

In section 8.1 the classifier was advised that he should not class solely from 
the index, because he might miss helpful guidance that appears only in the 
schedules. One example of this may be seen when a schedule entry directly 
indicated by an index entry incorporates a cross reference or a class elsewhere 
note. For such a situation the index does not undertake to show the numbers 
for the detached or related parts of the subject; it assumes that the classifier 
will look in the schedules at the number named and there acquire further 
necessary information. For example, the index entry for "Water transportation 
commerce 387" does not point out that inland waterway and ferry transporta- 
tion are in 386. This information is obtained by the classifier only when he 
turns to 387 in the schedule. 

However, if the cross reference or class elsewhere note is not immediately 
at the entry designated by the index, the additional information is given in 
the index. For example, under "Matriculation schools 371.21" there is a refer- 
ence "see also specific levels of education. " In the schedule, the fact that all 
topics in subdivisions of 371 are to be classed with the specific level when 
limited to that level is stated at 371, but not at 371.21 or any other of its 
many subdivisions. 

In order that full utilization may be made of cross references to keep the 
index within a reasonable length, they will be found on occasion to lead to 
an arbitrary term which, even though of itself no one would look under it, 
has been chosen by the editors as a group designation under which to gather 
all the appropriate information. For example, under "Minor metals" the classi- 
fier will find consolidated numerous aspects applying to niobium, hafnium, 
germanium, and eighteen other elements, from all of which reference is made 
to "Minor metals" in lieu of repetition of the various aspects under each. 

11.4 Coordination with schedules. It is obvious that the index entries, 
because they are closely coordinated with each other and with the schedules, 
must be used with care and thought; and further that it is not advisable to 
use a number printed at the topic sought without first following up the perti- 
nent cross references. It is equally not advisable to classify from the index 
alone without referring to the schedule, which is the only place where, on 
the various steps of the hierarchical ladder, may be found all the information 
about coverage and correct use of the numbers. To quote Melvil Dewey, in

his introduction to Edition 12: "Assyn numbers by uzing Tables [i.e., schedules] 
alone, and then always verify yur result by the Index. ... As a chek against 
error, even tho familiar with the skeme, uze Index freely." 

11.5 Arrangement and other general information. Except where 
sense or syntax requires otherwise, nouns are entered in the index in plural 
form. 

If the subject that a classifier wants is not found in the index, he should 
look for it under a synonym, under another word of the same root, under a 
related term (for example, if what is wanted is not found under "heart," he 
should try "cardi-"), or under a broader subject. 

Unless relativity requires inversion, adjective + noun phrases are entered 
in direct form only, e.g., Mechanical engineering, not Engineering mechanical. 
However, if the classifier cannot find such a phrase under the adjective he 
should look under the noun alone, e.g., not finding Anglican bishops or apple 
pies he should look under Bishops and Pies respectively. 

Index entries are arranged alphabetically word by word. Terms indented 
below the main headings are alphabeted in one group even though they may 
be a mixture of topical subheadings and words that, when combined with 
the main heading, form phrases or inverted subjects. Indention in the index 
has the same hierarchical force that it has in the schedules. Terms followed 
by explanatory words in parentheses are alphabeted separately. Hyphenated 
words are considered to be single words. Hyphens are often used to make 
syntactical distinctions, e.g.. Grinding cereal grains, Grinding-tools, and the 
classifier should check all such possibilities. Abbreviations are filed as if spelled 
in full. A list of abbreviations used precedes the index. Initials such as UHF 
and USSR are filed as if each letter were a separate word. Names beginning 
with Mc and M' are arranged as if spelled Mac. Modified vowels, such as a, 
o, u, are arranged as a, o, u. 

Numbers preceded by a dash and a term in italics will be found in the 
auxiliary tables. For example, numbers preceded by "^.^.-"are in Table 1 
Standard Subdivisions, "area-'* reiers to Table 2 Areas, "lang.-" to Table 6 
Languages. Numbers supplied by the tables are never used alone, but are 
added as appropriate to numbers from the schedule. Numbers preceded by 
''law s.s.-" a.Te to be found in the specially extended standard subdivisions 
for law that are enumerated under centered heading 342-347 and may be 
added to class numbers from that span as appropriate. 

Digits to the right of the decimal point, and digits in numbers from the 
tables, are printed in groups of three. This device is purely for ease in reading 
and copying. The spaces are not part of the numbers, and the groups are 
not related to those shown in DDC numbers on Library of Congress and 
other centralized cataloging records, for which see section 10.2. 

12 General suggestions. The classifier may be repaid by checking to deter- 
mine whether one of the centralized classification services has already assigned

Editor's Introduction 



a number. Even if an individual library does not follow the same edition of 
DDC or the same policies as the central service, or has made local adaptations 
of its own, the decisions of experts are helpful. Among the more important 
sources for Dewey numbers from the latest unabridged edition are Library 
of Congress catalog cards, book catalogs, and tapes; the ALA Booklist, Publish- 
ers' Weekly, and American Book Publishing Record. Numbers from the latest 
abridged edition appear in Book Review Digest and the various parts of the 
Standard Catalog Series. Since 1969 the British National Bibliography has 
followed the latest edition mostly without change, and more recently 
Canadiana and the Australian National Bibliography have done likewise. 

It has sometimes been proposed that Library of Congress catalog cards should 
include a book number along with each Dewey Decimal Classification number, 
but this has not been considered feasible, because (1) diflFerent existing libraries 
use different book numbering systems; (2) even newly established libraries, 
which might be expected to find this service most useful, class and number 
works not covered by printed cards, and in so doing may be expected, in a 
given class, to preempt book numbers that would later appear on printed 
cards for other titles in the same class. 

To promote consistency and future efiBciency, the classifier should make a 
local record of all decisions. Most libraries maintain a shelflist or similar record 
which lists all works in classified order, thus showing the application of the 
different class numbers to specific works. Decisions on specific problems may 
be written at the pertinent point in the classification schedules or recorded 
in the shelflist or kept in a separate file, or a combination of methods may 
be employed. 

13 Variations from recommended practice. 

13.1 Principle of usefulness. Although an important feature of the 
DDC is that its notation provides a universal language that can be understood 
in all libraries and in all countries, nevertheless, in serving the special needs 
of a library's clientele, a classifier may sometimes find it desirable to modify 
specific printed provisions in ways other than reduction (for which see section 
10). This is permissible if there is a real and permanent local need. By "real" 
is meant that each variation should have a demonstrable reason that can be 
recorded and defended. By "permanent" is meant that a specific need of a 
temporary or short-term nature should not be met by adjustment of class 
numbers. In any event variations should be adopted only with caution; see 
section 13.4. 

The classifier should record in the schedules every decision for variation. 
As with reductions, he should not, however, try to record such decisions in 
the index. 

13.2 Officially recognized variations. A number of important varia- 
tions appear in the printed schedules or are otherwise officially recognized. 
They are available and recommended for use by libraries whose needs they

wdll serve, but are not reflected in the practices of the Decimal Classification 
Division as recorded on Library of Congress cataloging records. 

13.21 Optional provision. Certain topics are given two (or more) specific 
placements. One of these is always preferred by the editors, and in each case 
an instructional note appears under both the preferred and the optional num- 
bers (see section 8.52). Several examples follow. 

Instead of the traditional DDC arrangement of belles-lettres by form, which 
separates the works of an author who writes in diflFerent forms, e.g., poetry 
and drama, some libraries, especially those in colleges and universities, prefer 
to have all of the literary works of an author classed together. Under each 
language they may then arrange all of the works written in that language in 
one alphabetical author sequence or in groups by chronological periods, regard- 
less of the literary form of the works. The DDC recognizes this method of 
arranging literary works by a note in Table 3 Subdivisions of Individual Litera- 
tures, under centered heading —1-8 Specific forms: "Class description, critical 
appraisal, biography, collected works of an individual author with the form 
with which he is chiefly identified; or, if preferred, class description, critical 
appraisal, biography, single and collected works of all individual authors regard- 
less of form in —8." (In the preferred arrangement, even when description, 
criticism, collected works, etc. of an author are classed with the form with 
which he is chiefly identified, single works should still be classed by form, 
e.g., John Galsworthy as a whole, and his novels, in 823, but his plays in 822.) 
Under —8 the classifier will find: "(It is optional to class here description, 
critical appraisal, biography, single and collected works of all individual authors 
regardless of form; prefer — 1-8)." 

Treatment of biography varies greatly from one library to another. Many 
academic libraries prefer it arranged with pertinent subjects, e.g., biography 
of engineers with engineering, of statesmen with general history of appropriate 
countries, of artists with art. On the other hand, most popular libraries prefer 
all or most biography together, either subarranged by subject or (for individual 
biography) in one alphabet by biographee. Accordingly, while use of standard 
subdivision 092 with each subject is the editors' recommended treatment of 
biography, a note appears in Table 1 under 092, "If preferred, class biography 
in 920.1-928.9," and under 0924 Individual, "If preferred, class individual 
biography in 92 or B [these being traditional notations used widely for individ- 
ual biography kept together in one alphabetical span]; or, if preferred, class 
individual biography of men in 920.71, of women in 920.72." 

Traditionally, Dewey has placed the various branches of geography under 
the specific topics that are considered by area, e.g., economic geography 
330.91-.99, phytogeography 581.9, medical geography 614.423-.429. How- 
ever, with a growing academic and research interest in geography, in recent 
years numerous libraries have come to prefer an arrangement that brings 



all geography together. Such an arrangement is supplied optionally at 910.1 
Topical geography, which is subdivided by subject, e.g., economic geography 
910.133, phytogeography 910.158, medical geography 910.1614. 

Ancient history of various places is classed by editors' preference in the 
930s, but, optionally, may be classed in 940-960 immediately preceding later 
periods in the history of the places concerned, e.g., ancient Egypt preferred 
in 932 but optional in 962.01. 

13.22 Devices for giving more emphasis to favored subjects. The decimal 
notation being limited to nine significant digits, Melvil Dewey usually assigned 
1-8 to those places, races, languages, cultures, religions that were most signifi- 
cant to American libraries of 1876, grouping others in 9. As a result, there 
are places, races, languages, cultures, religions on which there is now a mass 
of literature that have been assigned notations with long base numbers, e.g., 
Urdu language 491.439 (while English is 42), Hinduism, 294.5 (whUe Christian- 
ity is 23-28). Consequently, libraries serving Eastern and other cultures are 
likely to find the bulk of their collections classed near the end of long sequences 
and denoted by long numbers. 

13.221 Artificial digits. As one means of correcting this situation, the 
schedules and tables frequently suggest as an option that a letter or other 
symbol be used as an artificial digit to bring into prominence and give a shorter 
number to any desired linguistic, ethnic, or cultural approach. For example, 
a note at 081-089 provides that general Urdu anthologies may be placed in 
08U (or 08* or OSf), instead of 089.91439, and shelved before 081; a note at 
292-299 provides that Hinduism may be placed in 2H0 (or 2*0 or 2+0), instead 
of 294.5, and shelved before 220, or, as another option, 29H may be used 
preceding 291 or 292. 

13.222 Use of established numbers with unofficial meanings. Another 
method for featuring and giving shorter notation to a specific race, language, 
or culture is to use for the favored subject the notation that has been assigned 
to the subject given prominence by the ofificial schedules or tables. An example 
may be found under 810: "(If it is desired to give local emphasis and a shorter 
number to a specific literature other than American literature in EngUsh, 
e.g., Afrikaans literature, it is optional to class it here; in that case class American 
literature in English in 820)." Another example under 230-280 reads: "(If it 
is desired to give local emphasis and more and shorter numbers to a specific 
religion other than Christianity, e.g.. Buddhism, it is optional to class it in 
these numbers, its sources in 220, comprehensive works in 200; in that case 
class Bible and Christianity in 298)." The classifier will observe that the note 
always tells where to class the subject displaced by the subject to which he 
wishes to give prominence. 

13.23 Types of works not classified. Many popular libraries follow the pol- 
icy of not classifying certain categories of works, but, instead, of arranging 



Ixviii 



Ixix 



••^f?*!?^•?^if»*f^4<^^";TJ--J«•v:•?^r•^' 



Dewey Decimal Classification 



them alphabetically. Most frequently this kind of treatment is given to individ- 
ual works of fiction in the language commonly read by the library's patrons. 
For example, in the United States, fiction published in English language, no 
matter what the country of origin or language of composition, is arranged 
by author, e.g., Dickens, Hemingway, Proust, Zweig. In a similar manner, 
some libraries arrange all their bound periodical sets, no matter what the 
subject, in a single sequence by title. 

13.3 Unofficial variations. Other variations may prove to be useful 
in specific situations even though not officially recognized. 

13.31 Alphabetical arrangement. As an alternative to systematic arrange- 
ment, or as a means for homemade expansion (see also section 13.34), alphabeti- 
cal arrangement using the Cutter, Cutter-Sanborn, or Library of Congress 
author tables (see section 5.121) may serve specific local purposes. It is most 
useful when there are large numbers of specific coordinate subdivisions with 
accepted names and when the full DDC numbers would be very long. Exam- 
ples of numbers with many subtopics that the classifier may wish to consider 
for alphabetical subarrangement are families of dicotyledonous plants in 583, 
counties of United States in "Areas" notation 74-79 from Table 2, occupations 
in 331.28, goods in 338.47. Care must always be exercised to avoid duplicate 
listing of the same concept under difi^erent terms. For example, in lists of 
occupations, works on welding should not appear under both "welding" and 
"metalworking. " 

Sometimes the editors are asked why a particular subject should not have 
an alphabetical rather than a classified geographical arrangement, e.g., U.S. 
states arranged alphabetically instead of by the area notation. It is true that 
the sequence Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California . . . Wyoming 
is quite familiar and easy to understand. It is true also that under many subjects, 
e.g., statistics, such an arrangement is entirely satisfactory. But under others, 
e.g., fauna and flora, it is more satisfactory to find Virginia and West Virginia 
side by side rather than separated by Washington state. A separate alphabetical 
arrangement for cities, distinct from that for states, will bring close together 
treatment of churches (or any other appropriate subject) in Springfield, Illinois, 
and Springfield, Massachusetts, but only separate churches in the latter city 
from those in Quincy, Newton, and Lynn, Massachusetts. 

13.32 Omitting digits. Occasionally, in order to shorten a number, it is 
possible to omit a digit from within the number. This may be done relatively 
safely in certain circumstances, e.g., when a relocation between editions has 
forced the editors to use an additional in the new edition in order to avoid 
a reuse of an old number or numbers with a new meaning or meanings, but 
the individual library has not used the number(s) with the earlier meaning(s). 
For instance, in Table 3 Subdivisions of Individual Literatures it is possible 
to omit a from certain numbers. Since the publication of Edition 17, in 



Ixx 



■. -• r»r*r* -•r*' 



Editor's Introduction 



main class 8 each literature has had its own period divisions, which are difi'erent 
from those in the 16th and earlier editions, because those were based on 
the period numbers in standard subdivisions 0901-0904. For example, the 
numbers for period divisions of history and criticism of United States literature 
are now 810.9001-.9005 rather than 810.903-.904 as in the 16th and earlier 
editions. Any library that has not previously used 810.903-.904 may omit one 
of the Os from 810.9001-.9005 and class periods of U.S. literature in 810.901- 
.905. However, any such variations should be made with caution, because of 
the possibility of changes in future editions. 

13.33 Attraction. Because of special local interest or special collections of 
books, it may on occasion appear desirable to bring together all works on a 
given subject in only one of the several possible disciplines, e.g., all works 
on Jews in 296, all works on automobiles in 629.2. 

An extension of this practice is the complete reversal of DDC order. For 
example, a library devoted to travel and area study, or to maps, might make 
an administrative decision to arrange its collections entirely by place. To 
achieve this arrangement it could use the "Areas" notations for the basic classes, 
followed, when appropriate, by and the DDC subject numbers. Then every- 
thing on Japan would be placed in class 52; religion in 5202, economic situation 
in 52033, art in 5207. In such a system works not limited by area could be 
placed in notation followed by the regular DDC notation, e.g., economic 
conditions of the whole world 033. Needless to say, this kind of use of DDC 
would be purely local, and would receive no support from central classification 
services. 

13.34 Expansion. The demands of an extraordinarily large collection in 
a given subject may appear to encourage the development of a homemade 
expansion. Such a step is strongly discouraged. An institution needing an expan- 
sion should consult with the Decimal Classification Division of the Library 
of Congress, which, if the need appears to be general, will undertake to prepare 
it. In the meantime the broader classification should be made to serve until 
the official expansion is available. A good expansion requires time for study, 
research, interviewing, and correspondence, and necessitates a broad and dis- 
passionate overall approach. The librarian who makes his own changes or 
expansions should remember that, once a change is made, the library, because 
of the expense of reclassifying, in all probability will be forced to abide by it 
indefinitely, unable to make use of official expansions and improvements in 
subsequent editions. This warning applies also to unauthorized number build- 
ing, including successive division by more than one principle. It is best, if 
local additions must be made and cannot await editorial action, that letters 
or other artificial digits be used. 

13.35 Standard subdivisions. Some libraries will prefer to keep their em- 
ployment of standard subdivisions consistent, always using regular notations 



Ixxi 



Dewey Decimal Classification 



instead of the irregular notations described in section 8.73. This is not likely 
to create future difficulty, and may be eflFected by canceling the special instruc- 
tions to use irregular notation under specific subjects. 

13,36 Showing language in notation. Libraries wishing to establish sepa- 
rate collections for their works in different languages can do so by prefixing 
to each class number appropriate numbers from the languages notation of 
Table 6, e.g., (21)536.2 and (21)709.54 for works in English on heat transfer 
and Indian art respectively, (9144)536.2 and (9144)709.54 for works in Bengali 
on the same subjects. Libraries wishing to class conventionally by discipline 
and subject, and then differentiate by language, can follow the reverse proce- 
dure, e.g., 536.2(21), 536.2(9144), 709.54(21), 709.54(9144). The parentheses 
are only for illustrative purposes; any other device, provided its use and mean- 
ing are clearly understood, can serve the same purpose. 

13.4 Caution. Although it is possible to adopt variations from recom- 
mended practice when they will prove useful, many such adoptions are short- 
sighted, and variations should be held to the barest minimum. Raynard C. 
Swank has summed this up as follows: "Every modification of an established 
classification schedule means additional work for the catalogers in the future, 
since these modifications prevent the department from taking full advantage 
of centralized cataloging at the Library of Congress. ... As the library grows, 
simplifications adopted now might have to be undone and the books redistrib- 
uted among the original or other similar schedules. By and large, I doubt 
that any tampering with the Dewey schedule is worthwhile. I have never 
worked in a library that has not regretted, sooner or later, departures from 
the standard schedules of classification." (Quoted in Schultheiss, Culbertson, 
Heiliger, Advanced Data Processing in the University Library. New York, 
Scarecrow Press, 1962, p. 7.) 

14 Special problems. 

14,1 Long numbers. The DDC has been criticized for the length of its 
notation in certain classes, especially those that have grown rapidly since Melvil 
Dewey's original apportionment of numbers. Without doubt, the distribution 
is poor in the light of present knowledge (e.g., the schedule for section 621 
alone is longer than those for the entire main classes 000-099 or 400-499), 
and repair is virtually impossible in view of the traditional policy of integrity 
of numbers, a policy which permits only the most sparing reuse of numbers 
with new meanings (see section 14.23). To reapportion the notation so that 
it would be equally hospitable to all disciplines and subjects represented in 
libraries today would require the development of a wholly new system and 
would only establish a base for other inequities in a future that today cannot 
be imagined, just as much of the knowledge of the 1970s and '80s could not 
be foreseen by Dewey in the 1870s. So long as the DDC continues to expand 
in order to keep pace with knowledge, its users will encounter "long" numbers,

Editor's Introduction 



but they need not necessarily accept them. A classification scheme may be 
used for two distinct purposes: (1) for storage and retrieval of precise and 
detailed information, and (2) for arranging works on shelves in subject group- 
ings. For the first purpose long numbers are inevitable. For the second, most 
users feel that shorter numbers are adequate, and suggestions have been given 
for reducing numbers in section 10. Some few libraries shelve by numbers 
of limited length, but on catalog and shelflist cards and inside each book give 
a complete number based on the full DDC schedules, with the shelving digits 
in black and the nonshelving digits in red. Another possible method for shorten- 
ing numbers is the substitution of arbitrary signs for the basic part of heavily 
used long numbers. For example, an engineering library can substitute letters 
of the alphabet for some of the larger engineering subdisciplines with long 
notations, such as E (for electrical) in lieu of 621.3, AE (for aeronautical) in 
lieu of 629.1, AU (for automotive) in lieu of 629.2, AS (for astronautical) in 
lieu of 629.4. If it is not feasible to shorten numbers, transcription and reading 
of many digits may be made easier by writing long numbers on several lines, 
e.g., 581 instead of 581.92975939. 
.929

14.2 Changes between editions. Several kinds of changes occur be- 
tween editions that require special methods for adjustment within established 
library collections: (1) expansions and reductions, which result in topics being 
assigned longer or shorter numbers than in earlier editions; (2) relocations 
(see section 8.56); (3) reused numbers; and (4) phoenix schedules, which are 
totally new developments on established bases. 

Ideally, for maximum utilization of the Classification, all such changes should 
be adopted promptly, not only for materials currently received but also for 
materials classed earlier. However, this is not usually practical, and the follow- 
ing compromises may be considered: 

14.21 Expansions and reductions. Most libraries adopt each new expansion 
that is expected to serve a special need, and assign the lengthened number 
to works received after the date of adoption. Not often, however, do they 
reclassify older materials into a more specific number. There is no great loss 
in this omission, because the older works in the shorter number will remain 
either adjacent to or near the new works in the longer number and will be 
grouped with works on the broader subject of which their specific topics form 
a part. 

Libraries are somewhat less likely to adopt a new reduction, though in cases 
where there are no numbers intervening between the longer and shorter 
numbers, there is little reason for not doing so. It should be kept in mind 
that an editorial reduction does not necessarily reflect merely a lessening

Dewey Decimal Classification 



Editor's Introduction 



amount of publication on the subject, but may be introduced in anticipation 
of future development of a new and better expansion. 

14.22 Relocations. It is a good policy for a library to adopt each relocation 
as soon as it can, and in any event to use the new number for classification 
of new materials. Failure to adopt the relocation for future use means loss 
of the benefits of centralized classification service and the courting of future 
conflict. Failure to reclassify older materials means separation of works on a 
given subject. However, local circumstances, such as an active weeding pro- 
gram and the shelving of older material in closed stacks, may make this tolera- 
ble. Suggested methods of alleviating the inconveniences are to place cross 
references in the shelflist and appropriate labels or wooden-block dummies 
on the shelves. A Ust of relocations in this edition appears in this volume 
following Tables 1-7. 

14.23 Reused numbers. Assignment of new topics to recently vacated num- 
bers is held by the editors to an absolute minimum (except for phoenix sched- 
ules, for which see section 14.24), because such reuse is a potential source of 
very great confusion. Unlike relocations, which may separate like materials, 
reuse of numbers results in unlike materials sharing the same number. For 
example, the 14th and earlier editions used 621.46 for animal motors and 
treadmills, the 15th-17th editions did not use it at all, and the 18th and present 
editions use it for Electric propulsion technology. In this edition there are 
eleven reused numbers, exclusive of those in phoenix schedules; they are identi- 
fied by italics, and they are listed in section 2.4. It is strongly recommended 
that old material be removed from them and placed in appropriate new loca- 
tions when each number is first used with its new meaning. 

14.24 Phoenix schedules. Each recent edition has provided a completely 
new development of the schedule for one or more disciplines for which the 
older development was totally inadequate to meet the requirements of modern 
literature: inorganic and organic chemistry in Edition 16, psychology in Edition 
17, law and mathematics in Edition 18. In this edition there are phoenix devel- 
opments for sociology, the political process, and British local administrative 
units. For important topics in each of these fields there appears in volume 
1, preceding the summaries, a list of changed numbers. The editors realize 
that introduction into an existing book collection of the provisions of these 
new schedules is difficult and expensive, but recommend nevertheless that 
they be adopted. Failure to do so will mean continued use of schedules incapa- 
ble of dealing with publications of the 1970s and '80s. In order to avoid chaos 
in the collections, reclassification, with the aid of the lists of changed numbers, 
of works previously classed according to the older schedules should proceed 
as rapidly as possible. 

15 How an edition of the Dewey Decimal Classification is prepared. Each 
new edition is based on its immediate predecessor. First, editorial rules are 



revised to improve clarity in textual presentation. Then, taking into consider- 
ation the response of users (including those in the Library of Congress's Deci- 
mal Classification Division) to the immediately preceding as well as earlier 
editions, the editors in consultation with the Decimal Classification Editorial 
Policy Committee and the Forest Press Committee determine which schedules 
require what degree of revision and review, from full phoenix treatment, 
which provides a totally new development on the old base number, to routine 
review, which may be little more than modification of the text to conform 
to changes in the editorial rules. 

Major revisions are prepared with the advice of subject experts. All revision 
includes at least a routine review of LC's Dewey-classed file to see if the 
textual provisions of the previous edition have been adequate for the literature 
and clearly understood by the user. The actual mechanics of setting forth 
revised text and cross checking every detail constitute a time-consuming and 
detailed effort. 

At all times the editors must keep in mind the needs of diverse users, includ- 
ing practitioners in small and large, popular and research libraries, as well 
as teachers and students. They must also provide guidance for international 
usage. They must balance innovation against stability, required degree of detail 
against length of notation.

References to further information on the terms defined may be found in 
the Index to Editor's Introduction and Glossary, which follows. 

Add note. An instruction directing the addition to a designated base number of digits 
derived either from a number sequence in the schedules or from a table. Replaces 
the former instruction to "divide like." See also Number building. 

Application. A principle, concept, procedure, or technique basic to a specific discipline,

"Areas". Table 2. A table of notations designating geographical areas. Applied to other 
notations in the schedules and tables through use of add notes. 

Artificial digit. A letter or other symbol used in certain cases as a substitute for digits 
0-9 to provide a more prominent location or shorter notation for various languages, 
literatures, religions, cultures, ethnic groups. 

Aspect. That part of a single subject which belongs to a specific discipline. Examples: 
the technical and economic aspects of automobile manufacture. 

Attraction. Classification of a specific aspect of a subject in the wrong discipline, usually 
because the correct discipline contains no named provision for the subject in question. 
Examples: classification of space medicine with astronautical engineering instead 
of with medicine; classification of Jewish sociology with Judaism instead of with 
sociology. 

Author number. A combination of letters and /or figures representing the name of an 
author. 

Auxiliary table. See Table. 

Base number. (1) In a sequence of numbers, that portion which does not vary but 
remains the same in each member of the sequence. To this number digits from 
the tables or from another sequence in the schedules may be added as instructed. 
(2) The unvarying portion of a sequence from which digits are taken to form another 
sequence may also be referred to as a base number. 

Bibliographic classification. See Close classification. 

Book number. That portion of a call number which designates a specific individual 
work within its class. May consist of author number and/or other elements, e.g., 
subject of a biography. 

Broad classification. (1) Use of only the more inclusive classes of a classification scheme, 
omitting detailed subdivision. Also called reduction of numbers. (2) A classification

scheme which does not provide for minute subdivison of topics. See also Reduction 

of numbers. 
Call number. A set of letters, numerals, and /or other symbols providing complete 

identification of an individual work and its relative location, consisting of class and 

book number and sometimes of such other data as date, volume number, copy num- 
ber, location symbol. 
Centered entry. An entry representing a concept for which there is no specific number 

in the hierarchy of notation, and which, therefore, covers a span of numbers.

divided. Example: division of textiles by material, process used in manufacture, color, 

destined usage, etc. 
Citation order. The order in which the classifier should take account of the subdivisions 

of a subject that is divided by more than one characteristic. Example: weaving cotton 

textiles is classed first by material (cotton), then by process (weaving). May be specified 

by a Class elsewhere note, an Order of precedence note, or a Table of precedence 

(q-v.). 
Class, (noun) (1) A group of objects exhibiting one or more common characteristics, 

usually identified by a specific notation. (2) One of the ten major groups numbered 

0-9 of the DDC. Also known as Main class. (3) A subdivision of the DDC of any 

degree of specificity, (verb) To assign a class number to an individual work. See 

also Classify. 
Class elsewhere note. An instruction under a heading directing that certain specific 

portions of the topic, or related topics, be classed in another number. 
Class here note. An instruction under a heading directing that topics broader than 

the heading, or otherwise not obviously part of the heading, be classed in the given 

number and, by implication, its subdivisions. 
Class number. That portion of a call number which designates the class of a given 

work. 
Classification. (1) An arrangement in some logical order of the whole field of knowledge, 

or of some specified portion thereof. (2) The art of arranging books or other objects 

in conformity with such a scheme.

rather than alphabetically. 
Classify. To arrange a collection of works according to the provisions of a classification 

scheme. See also Class (verb).

caDed bibliographic classification. (2) Arrangement of works in conformity with the 

provisions of such a scheme. 
Comprehensive work. A work on a given subject within one discipline covering all, 

or most, of the subdivisions of the subject. See also Interdisciplinary work. 

Cross classification. A situation in which a given work deals with two or more subdivi- 
sions of a subject, with each subdivision representing a different characteristic of 
division. Such a situation creates the possibility of inconsistent classification. Example: 



a work on weaving cotton cloth deals with two subdivisions of textile technology, 
cotton (material) and weaving (process), and may be classed with either. See also 
Citation order. 
Cross reference. An instruction note leading from the point at which comprehensive 
works on a subject are classed (whether stated or implied) to subdivisions of the 
topic located in numbers other than those subordinate to the number used for com- 
prehensive works. 

DDC. Dewey Decimal Classification. 

Discipline. An organized field of study or branch of learning dealing with specific 
kinds of subjects and /or subjects considered from specific points of view. 

Discontinued number. A number from the immediately preceding edition vacated 
because its content has been moved back to a more general number.

Hierarchical force. The property by which headings and certain notes apply to all 
subdivisions of the topic described and defined. 

Hierarchy. The arrangement of disciplines and subjects in an order ranging from the 
most general to the most specific. In DDC degree of specificity is usually indicated 
by length of notation and always by depth of indention. 

Inclusion note. An enumeration of subordinate topics under a heading, not obviously 
part of it, that have not yet been given separate provision. Such notes do not apply 
to subdivisions of the topic.

Main class of DDC. One of the ten major subdivisions of the Classification, represented 
by the first digit in the notation, e.g., the 6 in 600. 

Memory aid. Any of various methods of using the same combination of numbers to 
represent the same topic in various contexts. 

Notation. Numerals, letters, and /or other symbols used to represent the main and 
subordinate divisions of a classification scheme. 

Number building. The process of making a number more specific through addition 
of segments taken from other parts of the classification. See also Add note. 

Number column. The column of numbers printed at the left side of the entries in 
the schedules and tables, and at the right side of those in the index. 

Optional provision. A variation from the preferred provision, ofi'ered to users in the 
printed schedules and tables of the DDC, but not used in centraUzed classification 
as supplied by the Library of Congress and rarely used by other centralized services 
of national libraries. 

Order of precedence note. A note stating the correct citation order under a subject 
that the schedules subdivide according to more than one characteristic. See also 
Citation order. 

"Persons". Table 7. A table of notations designating persons by specific occupational 
and other classes. Applied to other notations in the schedules and tables through 
use of add notes. 

Phoenix schedule. A completely new development of the schedule for a specific disci- 
pline. Only the basic number for the discipline is certain to remain the same as in 
previous editions, all other numbers being freely reused to the extent required. 

Precedence order note. See Order of precedence note. 

Precedence table. See Table of precedence, 

"Racial, Ethnic, National Groups". Table 5. A table of notations designating specific 
racial, ethnic, or national groups. Applied to other notations in the schedules through 
use of add notes. 

Reduction of numbers. Dropping by the classifier of one or more digits at the end of 
a number given in the schedules or tables. Results in a shorter number with a more 
inclusive meaning, thus in broader classification. See Broad classification (1). 

Reduction of schedules. Dropping by the editors of some or all of the previous subdivi- 
sions of a nimiber with resultant classification of these concepts in a higher number. 
This results in a notation for the topic that is one or more digits shorter than it 
was in the immediately preceding edition. See Discontinued number. 

Relativity. That property of the index which reverses the subordination of subject to 
discipline, thus bringing together from all disciplines the various aspects of individual 
subjects. 

Relocation. An adjustment in the schedules resulting in the shifting of a topic between 
successive editions from one number to another that diCFers in respects other than 
length. 



Reuse of numbers. A total change in the meaning of a given number from one edition 

to another. Rarely occurs in DDC unless the reused number has been vacant for 

two consecutive editions. 
Scatter note. A class elsewhere note that does not lead to a specific location, but indicates 

that the topic will be classed in a wide variety of appHcable locations. 
Scatter reference. A cross reference in the index not referring to a specific term but 

suggesting a variety of possibilities. 

Schedules. The series of numbers constituting the notation for the ten main DDC 
classes and all their subdivisions. Formerly called general tables or tables. 

Scope note. A note enumerating special qualifications generally appHcable to a subject 
and its subdivisions but not given a separate development. 

Section of DDC. The third degree of subdivision in the Classification (the second degree 
of subdivision of one of the ten main classes, and the first degree of subdivision of 
one of the 100 divisions), represented by the third digit in the notation, e.g., the 9 
in 629. There are approximately 1000 sections. 

Shelf classification. A classification designated for use in arranging books on shelves 
rather than for minute precision in designating subject areas and relationships. 

Special topic of general applicability. A kind of subdivision of a subject or discipline 
which is also a part of a different kind of subdivision of that subject or discipline. 
Example: textile technology is subdivided by the characteristic of process into weav- 
ing and knitting (among others); by the characteristic of material textile technology 
is also subdivided into cotton and wool (among others), and each of these material 
subdivisions may then be further subdivided by the process subdivisions, e.g., weaving 
cotton, knitting wool. See also Characteristic of division. 

"Standard Subdivisions". Table 1. A table of notations designating certain frequently 
recurring forms or methods of treatment applicable to any subject or discipline. 
May be added, as required, to any number in the schedules. 

"Subdivisions of Individual Languages". Table 4. A table of notations designating regu- 
larly recurring topics apphcable to any language. May be added, as directed, to 
individual languages in 420-490. 

"Subdivisions of Individual Literatures". Table 3. A table of notations designating regu- 
larly recurring topics applicable to any literature. May be added, as directed, to 
individual literatures in 810-890. 

Subject. A specific unit or object of study. May be a person, group of people, thing, 
place, process, activity, abstract concept. Usually exhibits aspects belonging to more 
than one discipline. 

Summary. A listing of the chief subdivisions of a number (i.e., those one digit longer) 
set forth at the head of the full development of the topic. The first three summaries 
(of main classes, divisions, sections respectively) stand at the head of the whole 
classification. 

Synthesis of notation. See Number building. 

Table. A sequence of dependent notations indicating various special concepts used 
repeatedly with a variety of subjects and disciplines. Used in number building but

never by itself. Also called auxiliary table. Formerly called supplementary tables. 
The term Tables was formerly used also for what are now called Schedules (q.v.). 

Table of precedence. A table stating the correct citation order under a subject that 
the schedules subdivide according to more than one characteristic. See also Citation 
order. 

Work. A unit or series of units of information having physical form and lending itself 
to bibliographic description. Examples: books, periodicals, phonorecords, films, 
microforms.

• t * t-« • • • * « »•» • .*-. ■ 



Use of the Tables 



Table 1. Standard Subdivisions 



These are auxiliary tables, and are used only in conjunc- 
tion with the classification schedules. In some instances, 
the numbers from one table may be added to those of 
another table, but in all cases the numbers from one or a 
combination of tables are to be used only with appropriate 
numbers from the schedules. 

The dash preceding each number merely shows that the 
number never stands alone. The dash is omitted when the 
table number is added to a schedule number to make a 
complete class number. 

Full instructions may be found in the Editor's Introduc- 
tion, those for the use of Table 1 in section 8.7, and those 
for Tables 2-7 in sections 8.541 and 8.543-8.545. 

Coordination and subordination of subjects are shown 
by indention and length of number, and are shown also 
in part by the prominence of the type face. 

A number in square brackets [ ] is not in use, or is not 
recommended for use, or is no longer in use with the mean- 
ing indicated. 

A number in italics is a reused number, i.e., it has a 
diflFerent meaning from that which it had in one or both 
of the earlier Editions 17 (1965) and 18 (1971). 

Specific directions as to applicability precede each table. 



The following notations are never used alone, but may be used as 
required with any number from the schedules, e.g., classification 
(—012 in this table) of modern Indie languages (491.4): 491.4012. 
When adding to a number from the schedules, always insert a 
decimal point between the third and fourth digits of the complete 
number. 

If at any given number there are subdivisions having a notation 
beginning with for a special purpose, use 001-009 for standard 
subdivisions; if notations beginning with and 00 both have 
special purposes, use 0001-0009 for standard subdivisions. 

Unless other instructions are given, class works to which two or 
more standard subdivisions are applicable according to the 
following table of precedence, e.g., illustrations of the 
technique of the subject —028 {not— 022):

Table 3. Subdivisions of Individual 

Literatures 



The following notations are never used alone, but may be used as 
required with the base numbers for individual literatures 
identified by * under 810-890. Full instructions are given below. 

Table 3 is followed and supplemented by Table 3-A, which provides 
additional elements for building numbers within Table 3. 

Procedures for building numbers in literatures of specific 
languages: 

1. Find the base number that is designated by note or appears 
in the number column of the schedule 810-890, e.g., 
English-language literature 82, Dutch-language literature 
839.31. If there is a specific literary form, proceed to step 2; 

if not, skip to step 7. 

2. Turn to Table 3 to find the correct subdivision for the 
literary form, e.g., poetry 1. Add this to the base number, 
e.g., English poetry 821, Dutch poetry 839.311. (If the specific 
hterary form is miscellaneous writings, follow the special 
instructions under 8 in Table 3.) If the work deals with or 
falls within a limited time period, proceed to step 3; if not, 
skip to step 6. 

3. Turn back to the appropriate number in the schedule 
810-890 and see if there is a period table. If there is a period 
table, proceed to step 4; if not, or if it cannot be used, the 
class number is completed by insertion of a decimal point 
between the third and fourth digits, e.g., 20th century drama in 
English by New Zealand authors 822, Cambodian poetry 895.9321. 
Note the optional use of letter prefixes or special numbers such 

as 828.99 to distinguish literatures of countries other than the 
"mother country," which makes the use of period tables 
feasible, e.g., 20th century drama in English by New Zealand 
authors NZ822.2 or 828.993322. 

4. Select the appropriate period number, e.g., EHzabethan 
period in English literature of Great Britain 3. Add this number 
to the base language and form numbers already derived, e.g., 
English poetry of Elizabethan period 821.3; always insert a 
decimal point after the third digit. If the work deals with more 
than one author, proceed to step 5. If the work is description, 
critical appraisal, biography, single or collected works of an 
individual author, the class number is complete (except for 
William Shakespeare), e.g., Spenser's Faerie Queene 821.3.

Dewey Decimal Classification 



Table 3. Subdivisions of Individual 
Literatures (continued) 

5. Return to xl-x9 under the particular form in Table 3, 
e.g., poetry 11-19, and for further extension of the correct 
number follow the instructions given there, making use of Table 
3-A when specified, e.g, critical appraisal of idealism in 
English Elizabethan poetry 821.30913. If the work deals with a 
specific kind of the literary form, the notation selected in 

step 4 for the period is not used, e.g., English lyric poetry of 
Elizabethan period 821.04; see final note under 11-19, 21-29, 
31-39, 51^9. 

6. If the work has no time period limitation, consult 
x001-x08 in Table 3 under the particular form, and follow the 
appropriate instructions, making use of Table 3-A when 
specified, e.g., collections of Enghsh poetry 821.008, 
collections of English poetry by rural authors 821.008091734. 
collections of English poetry about war 821.0080358. 

7. If the work is not limited to a specific literary form, 
consult 01-09 in Table 3 and follow the appropriate 
instructions, making use of Table 3-A when specified, e.g., 
collections of English hterature in many forms on holidays 
820.8033. If the work is not limited to a specific literary 
form, and is limited to a time period from a period table that 
cannot be used, do not use 001-009 following 08 or 09. The base 
number from step 1, extended if necessary to three-digit length 
by addition of a is the complete class number, e.g., 
collections of later 20th century Australian writings in English 
820. Note the optional use of letter prefixes or special numbers 
such as 828.99 to distinguish literatures of countries other 

than the "mother country," which makes the use of period tables 
feasible, e.g., collections of later 20th century Australian 
writings in EngUsh A820.8003 or 828.993408003. 

The procedures described above require the use of schedule 
810-890, Table 3, and Table 3-A in varying order. Sometimes also 
other tables are used. Example: 

English (810-890) ^^ 

poehy (Table 3) ^ 

of later 20th century (810-890) 914 

coUections (Table 3) ^^^ 

by racial, ethnic, national groups (Table 3-A) 8 

Africans (Table 5) ^ 

Thus, collections of contemporary English-language poetry by 
African authors 821.914080896. 

Note that literary form 8 Miscellaneous writings is arranged first 
by period and then by specific miscellaneous forms.

Table 6. Languages 



The following notations are never used alone, but may be used with 
those numbers from the schedules and other tables to which the 
classifier is instructed to add "Languages" notation, e.g., 
translations of Bible (220.5) into Dutch (—3931 in this table): 
220.53931; regions ("Areas" notation 175 from Table 2) where 
Spanish language (—61 in this table) predominates: "Areas" 
notation 17561. When adding to a number from the schedules, always 
insert a decimal point between the third and fourth digits of the 
complete number. 

Arrange as below; but, if it is desired to give local emphasis and 
a shorter number to a specific language, place it first by use of 
a letter or other symbol, e.g., Arabic language —A (preceding 

-1). 

Unless specifically provided for, class old and middle form of a 

specific modern language with the language, e.g.. Old High German 

—31, but Old English —29. 

The notations in this table do not necessarily correspond exactly 

to the numbers used for individual languages in 420-490 and in 

810-890. Follow the notations from this table only when so 

instructed.

Relocations and Schedule Reductions 



45^ 



Here for the convenience of classifiers wishing to survey the changes be- 
tween the past and present editions are brought together in one list all the 
relocations between Editions 18 and 19, and all schedule (and table) reductions 
since Edition 18, except relocations and reductions in phoenix schedules. 

In a relocation one or more topics are shifted to a new number differing 
from the old in respects other than length. If the relocation is partial, the 
original number remains, but if it is total the original number is vacated and, 
therefore, without use; in a few instances a vacated number has been immedi- 
ately reused with a new meaning. A schedule reduction is the result of shifting 
one or more topics to a new number shorter than the old but otherwise not 
differing from it. If all topics in a given number are thus shifted, the number 
is "discontinued." These features are described and explained in the Editor's 
Introduction, sections 8.56 and 14.2. 

In addition, several numbers have been dropped because their content in 
Edition 18 was meaningless within the context. 

The column headed Edition 18 indicates in numerical order each number 
in that edition from which a topic or group of topics has been shifted; the 
column headed Edition 19 indicates each corresponding number in the present 
edition to which those topics or groups of topics have been shifted. If two 
or more topics have been shifted from one number to two or more numbers, 
each separate shift is shown. 

Numbers in the Edition 75 column printed in square brackets are no longer 
in use (or, if in use, have completely new meanings, and are therefore also 
listed among the reused numbers in section 2.4 of the introduction): if followed 
by an asterisk, they have been discontinued as a result of schedule reduction; 
otherwise, they have lost their content as a result of total relocation. 

Numbers in the Edition 18 column not printed in brackets have lost part 
of their meaning through relocation or reduction, but still retain some of their 
original meaning. An asterisk signifies loss through reduction, its lack a loss 
through relocation. 

For example, part of what was in 001.552 has been relocated to 002; all 
that was in 010.28 has been relocated to 010.44; all that was in 016.05 has 
been relocated, some to 011.34 and some to 017-019. 021.1 and 021.4 have 



453 



Dewey Decimal Classification 



been discontinued and all their content moved up to the broader number 
021, while only part of the content of 021.6 has been moved up to 021. 

Only numbers appear in this list; for details of the topics concerned the 
classifier should consult the appropriate parts of the schedules and tables. 

"Scatter" means that a topic has been split and relocated to so many numbers 
that it is not feasible to name them all; "s.s." means standard subdivisions 
from Table 1; "area" means area subdivisions from Table 2; "lit. sub." means 
individual literature subdivisions from Table 3, and "lit. sub. A" means special 
notations from subsidiary Table 3-A; "lang. sub." means individual language 
subdivisions from Table 4; "lang." means language subdivisions from Table 6.

Lists of Changed Numbers 



460 



As noted at their respective points in the schedules, the developments for 
301-307 Sociology and 324 The political process, as well as many of those 
for "Areas" notation 41-42 from Table 2 British Isles, are new, though mostly 
built on the same base numbers as in the past. As is pointed out in section 
14.24 of the Editor's Introduction, users will benefit from the adoption of 
these new schedules. So that this task may be somewhat simplified, the follow- 
ing lists show the number changes from Edition 18 to Edition 19 for a substan- 
tial list of topics. Not included are topics that have been relocated to a diflFerent 
schedule, e.g., educational sociology relocated from 301.56 to 370.19 and so 
shown under both the old and the new numbers.

Use of the Schedules 



000 



Full instructions on use of the schedules may be found 
in the Editor's Introduction, sections 6-14. 

Coordination and subordination of subjects are shown 
by indention and length of number as described in section 
5.141, and are shown also in part by the prominence of 

the type face. 

A number in square brackets [ ] is not in use, or is not 
recommended for use, or is no longer in use with the 

meaning indicated. 

A number in italics is a reused number, i.e., it has a 
diflFerent meaning from that which it had in one or both 
of the earlier Editions 17 (1965) and 18 (1971). 

Asterisks (*) and daggers (f) lead to footnotes, which, 
in turn, usually lead to detailed instructions at a point ear- 
lier in the schedule. Instructions dealing with asterisks and 
daggers should be read with care, because, while they apply 
usually to whole entries, e.g., in 226-228, they sometimes 
apply to kinds of concepts, e.g., kinds of literature in 810- 
890, and sometimes to separate terms, e.g., in 592-599.
